Anyone know the inside dimension for the bow roller (between the metal uprights)for an 07 single axle boatmate. Is it 3.5" or 4" ? Mine is in storage so i can't look until may. I want to put a poly roller on it.

Thanks in advance

I changed mine last summer and I believe it's 3". I know it's not 4".

Seark,

Thanks, 4" seams a little wide probably for bigger boats

jm, have you thought about getting a boat buddie instead of the roller?

Not really, the boat goes off and on the trailer about twice a year then sits in our lift after that. i just don't want to clean the black marks every year off the bow roller,therefore the poly roller.

had to replace mine too.. the factory one ate up the gelcoat around the bow eye when it gave up and let the bolt inside rub against the bow! WOW>> THANKS.

Hey Razzman.

Where did you get that roller from?

I really like it.

Cheers

Right here, Stoltz Ultimate Bow Stop (http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=74107&pdesc=Stoltz_Ultimate_Bow_Stop_fits_3_wide_bracket _4_1/4_dia_end_bell&str=stoltz&merchID=1008&r=view) from Overton's. I got the thing and the next time we launched the boat i bent over the bow and changed it out in about 90 seconds before backing off all the way. :p
