Boat Buddy

Its time for a new boat buddy and was wondering where I could buy 1 from-also I assume it's just bolted on with 1 0r 2 screws? Also, it does seem like over kill-any 1 swap for a roller or is it possible?


Thanks

You can swap it for a roller no problem. If you have an open bow, it's no big deal to walk up there and hook up your winch strap to the bow eye. I used a non-marring roller and was pleased with it on my 205.

If you want to stick with the boat buddy, Kodiak Trailer has the boat buddy in whole or as separate shroud or internal parts.

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.

I have owned 2 mastercrafts. The first thing I do is take the "boat buddy" off and throw it in the trash. I put a clear roller. They are awesome.

I'd like to know where the clear rollers come from as well. My MC dealer only has the orange/yellow ones.

The yellow ones are non-marring for what it's worth.

If you know how to use the boat buddy and let it grow on you, it will become irreplaceable. We spend about 1 minute on the ramp. Back in, drive on, latch and get out of there. Easy peasy.

Mine is orange, and it leaves marks. If the yellow is the way to go, that's what I'll get.

I had no problem with the yellow roller leaving marks. The boat buddy was really bad about leaving marks.
