    The bow roller on the winch stand is the one I need to replace. After 4 yrs it has flattened out and the metal winch post almost touches the fiberglass boat between the roller and end bells. I was thinking on trying a " V " shaped bow stop on winch tower. Looking at options.

    My 214 rides on an Orange Roller .... it is firm and sounds firmer than the one you may have. It is a common part ....

    I have a Ramp and Clamp at the Winch Tower ... some folks have a bow roller there as well. I am partial to the RNC or Boat Buddy ...

    Peace ... let me know if you need pics, I can get some in the garage (need a reason to go out there anyway.)

    Need to replace the bow roller stop on the trailer. It is a 4 inch mount . The yellow one I think is to flexable , soft ?? The metal mounting bracket is only 1/4 from fiberglass when boat is loaded and round roller is pressed or squished flat. Makes me nervous !! What does anyone recommend from experience ? Boat is loaded on a Loadmaster trailer.

    I can attest that boat was sun baked. When I bought it, it had a new factory cover. But there were 3 sets of cover supports, so I assume they toasted 2 other factory covers. So that is 3 seasons max, per cover.

    Good question, I don’t think they are plastic. I do know they are meant for outdoor application though. Yes, the evolution cover was a nice fit, when he added the zippers to the main cover, the extra stitching really tightened it up. In hindsight, matching thethe D-ring clips (like he did the on the stern skirt) would have been nice. Regardless, I’m happy with the way it turned out. JohnE can attest, the original owner let it bake in the TX sun, so my goal once we built the dock, was to try and protect it as well as one can if leaving it on a lift year round.

    I would wait and just put a fresh one in at the start of the season. No sense in letting it dry out.

    Hey Mike, I sent my cover back to Cory to have them added on. They are in 3 sections and zip on to main cover.

    Nice platform cover. Send a PM if you are willing to share what it cost you. THX. Corey did a cover for one of my old boats, and I love the quality of his stuff
