You need a new and more sturdy coupler.... $0.02

.
Yes, I know already!! I even said; "I think I need to invest in a new coupler now..." I will take care of it.

Cloaked, I can get you more detail on the vertical v-pad, send me a PM. However, not sure what you mean about typical crapola?? Whats up??

hmm, well yesterday I put back on my polished raw water pump with new impellor and installed a new Precision Star GPS speedo. My right speedo was getting really slow getting up to speed. I had installed a new pick up and all new tubing and it didn't help. Had to put my bimini on yesterday, it was 105 here.

Also, buddy got his newly painted 94 205 back and had already installed his new interior - skins from Mastercraft and paid someone $400 to put the skins on the pads and motor box. He put a sound deadner kit under the motor box and the boat is quiet; exahust sounds great out the back. He got everything except a couple of side pocket pads, the boat looks amazing. We had a problem with his fuel pump relay but got that working but did order a new one to keep as a spare.

Crapola as in, the typical boat buddy / roller / type setup on my trailer. I can see this as an improvement to my preferences of landing on my trailer. However, I'd very much want to add a tiedown to the bow eye to trailer, other than just a winch, something similar to the Boat Buddy tie down for the bow. I have those on the rear of my trailer and they are convenient for use. These boats will come off a trailer much easier than what one thinks.

Thanks for the details of the vertical bunk. Heck, just post them up here. My PM box is broken...

Thank you

Good point! My brother owned a 1999 SN with an Eagle trailer. The vertical v-pad setup is the exact model he had on his trailer and I ordered it from Eagle directly. I had to do nothing with my trailer as it bolted right over my main strut. The only issue I had was I had to tell them it was for one of their trailers and what boat type it was for, since they change the setup based on the boat. At the time I knew his would fit mine so I just told them is was a 99 SN, and it works great!!

Yeah, I dont do that boat buddy / roller crapola either. Drive into the pads, drive off.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Inspected fluid in surge brake reservior since have been having a few situations where the backup solenoid didn't seem to be working. Found it almost empty and full of water/rust! Amazing the brakes even worked! Seems the is a pretty typical issue with UFP a-60 brake actuators. Considering just replacing the entire m/c sliding unit now as potential replacement parts could be as much as a whole new sliding assembly.

Guess what I'll be posting next weekend in the "what did you do to your boat today?" thread

Thanks. I'll call then on Monday and ask for dimensions, etc.

That sucker sure looks welded instead of bolted. Maybe just the way I am looking.

The BEST system, happened to be the most PIA system MC had on there trailers. And that was the dreaded front eye bar. But I can attest, it saved my brand new boat from a 55 MPH crash. The boat NEVER moved an inch!

The center roller looks a little narrow.
