85 S&S trailer carpeted V

I am putting this out there to see if anyone has found a replacement option for the carpeted V at the front of the trailer. I recarpeted it last year and it fell apart when i did that. Does anyone make a rubber V that would be a good replacement for there. Does anyone make the V that is carpeted and ready to bolt on there? Any help here would be of great help!

The composite piece fell apart, poked through the carpet and gashed my keel a couple of years back. I replaced it with wood, recarpeted, and it's held up well ever since.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Spenc,
I had the same problem with my trailer. The dealer I bought my boat from had the newer style pads. I had to drill a couple of holes for the new pads but it works great.

Sorry for the late response but thanks for the input.

Zach,
Do you remember about how much it cost or anything thing like that?

Just called Mastercraft of Charlotte and they said that there is no way that they can get this for me. I guess this is not a big deal because i can just cut some new pieces of wood but my thing is the carpet. I have purchased some from home depot last year and it seems to be scratching my hull up. Does anyone know where I can get some good carpet that is not going to do this? Please help before it is to late!
