Mine already has a roller on it. I replaced the roller and the pad last year. This is what it has done to my keel. I didn't know it had done it until I crawled up under it one day.

The way our trailers are designed something needs to be there. I don't hit it every time, but if the trailer and launch aren't perfect it rubs there. I thought of making some kind of a lower "V" guide there, but decided adding the roller was much easier. I agree we do need to keep an eye on the rollers as well, they take a lot of weight when loading and can wear out as well. We replaced the roller on my brother in law's '98 a few years back as he was getting down to the metal roller bar.

It should've been done like the braces farther back on the trailer are. They are bent in a V. The one up front is just to close to the keel.
