Boat Buddy Parts

Has anyone ever purchased replacement parts for their boat buddy? When I bought the boat last year all of the guts of the boat buddy are missing. Still has the plastic bumper though. Can you buy these parts (pin, spring, ect), or do I have to buy another whole assembly? Who do I get it from?

try www.boatersworld.com. You can get a new boat buddy for about $40--$50 if memory serves.

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.

Speaking of Boat Buddy....

I wonder why they don't make one that won't mark up the boat when you drive it on the trailer.

I got a keel roller that is clear, they should be able to make a Boat Buddy out of the same material.

That's when I'll buy another one. I'm using a non-maring bow roller and have been happy not to have to mess with those little black marks. Somebody on here carpeted his boat buddy to get around this problem.

Carpet on the boat buddy what an awesome idea. I am lucky I dont have to trailer much so mine is still perfect.

Poly

They make poly rollers and all of the accessories. Check out West Marine, they're a bit pricy, but worth it. -Brady

You're not talking about a poly boat buddy though, are you?

It is a latch system that is spring operated when your eye hook touches the contact, a bolt goes through the middle of your eye hook and catches. Thus, you are hooked and the driver can pull the boat out of the water.
