I have a 93 190 Stars & Stripes that has the origional trailer. The roller that centers the boat is causing damage/abrasion to the hull. This is a new roller. Can I get away with removing it without support issues?

I would be worried about damage to the keel without the roller.

Sometimes people are not aware of the fact that the roller is damaged or split and they damage the keel.

Please post a pic of your S&S!

Thanks.

Have you tried a poly, nonmaring roller? Keep your original shaft as the replacement I bought had a shaft that was just a tad short.

The roller is new. It just sems the bunks have settled and a lot of weight is on the roller. I will work on posting some pictures. My 93, though not in TMC 1's league, is in very good condition.

I'm familiar with your problem as my boat was putting some undue pressure on the keel roller before I replaced my bunks. There should be some contact, but not much. The nonmaring roller is much better than the black rubber ones.

I think bunk replacement is the thing to do, Though they look good, the boat has settled. I am already using a poly roller. New bunks will fix this. Thanks!
