Sorry to hijack your post. I replaced my roller on my pre bb boat with one of those. It should come with all you need and yes you just take bb off and bolt in same place. Only other thing is you need to make sure middle part is large enough to cover mounting post.

Good luck.
Too funny. Comedy writes itself. OP asks for specific help. Response: "I am ignoring your request for your own good because I know what's best for you, little fella". Watch out, unsolicited marital advice is next.

There are quite a few threads on here about adding carpet over the rubber to keep it from smudging onto the boat. I though boat buddy might even be making a carpet cover for it, but I could be wrong.

As far as the roller goes, I believe it should fit right in there. If you decide to go that route I would measure the width of the supports where it goes and the hole diameter to verify that you get the right size roller for it. Should be a pretty easy install though.

I definitely don't know what is best for myself, much less others. I have gained a ton of wealth reading post where they lead. The "you need to figure out trailer depth" was a universal you...i.e. "one" needs to figure out trailer depth to eliminate launching issues with their specific boat.

Hope things work out.

I would go with a clear stoltz roller because they tend to not leave marks on the boat.

That's what I have, works good.

BB pin: I have seen several bow eyes worn half way through due to the pin rubbing on it when left engaged. These are boats that are trailered everywhere (1000+ miles/season) so the risk is higher for this to happen....

This was posted on the Prostar thread but seemed to get lost in all the excitement.

A Boat Buddy that doesn't leave marks would be a popular item

This. I ditched the boat buddy early on in my MC stewardship. Nonmarring bow roller is the way to go. Use a backup chain and you're good to go. You won't miss it.

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.

Pretty sweet. I asked Kodiak years ago if they would ever make a nonmarring shroud for the boat buddy and was assured they would not. Looks like MC made a competing product since their patent expired several years ago. That metal bar is a bit worrisome though. Plastidip that thing.

Prefer a bow strap to chain.
