So I took my BB off and going with bow roller. My question is how do you get the roller on with the boat on the trailer?

Lift up front of boat by keel roller or use engine lift to lift at front lifting ring.. or better yet... time for a fall water ride ;)

Or, raise your trailer up all the way with your attached trailer roller jack, put a padded jack stand under the bow of your boat, then lower the trailer. Wala!! :)

Trailer eye would hit in both cases when I lower trailer back down. The only way I could see this working is moving the trailer backwards so I have enought room to get roller in. I would just dunk it but I can't fit the roller on with the eye so I would have no way to secure it to get it to the water.

iirc - you should really change the bow eye to a regular and then the eye should be up against the roller with the winch strap attached.

You mean get rid of the BB eye and go to a smaller one?
