New Boatmate 197 Trailer

I ordered a Boatmate trailer to replace the original trailer that was totaled when I was hit back in August. Iím very happy with the quality. The boat loads and fits on this trailer much better than the original. I added the logo and stars to dress it out a bit. Iím adding a Boat Buddy and putting the near new Goodyear Endurance tires from the old trailer on these rims. I debated putting the MasterCraft wheels on this trailer but I kind of like these I selected from Boatmate. All in all Iím happy.

I’ve had a lot of good luck with those west lake tires!

I had ordered a Boatmate trailer as well, very happy with quality and fit. I do like the full length trailer guide pole covers, where did you pick those up at?

Dockside Marine in Montgomery, TX. I have a pair from Texas MasterCraft but the wording on those rubs off onto the rub rail of the boat making white streaks that are hard to clean off. I think these are the same length as the others but look longer as the guide poles are shorter on the Boatmate trailer.

Yes, you are right about the white wording rubbing off on the rub rail, also on the boat mate trailer guides make sure the plastic cover guide are deburred, after the plastic guide had been cut to length, plastic burrs, did make a couple marks on my boat before I realized what was going on.
