Archived Trailer Guys Questions
Boat Trailering Guys,
Guys, need you expert advise. Just picked up another boat. The trailer isa heritage trailer with two rollers on the bow stop. The question is where does the bow strap go. Between the two rollers with the bow eye in between the rollers or under the bottom roller with the bow eye under the bottom roller. Sorry I'm so lame about this but I just can't remember and I've tried both ways and neither one looks right. So I'm going to the experts. Thank you.

You should determine where the strap goes based on the horizontal line from the winch to the bow eye. If it were me setting it up I would run the strap between the two rollers. If the strap is riding against one of the rollers while winching in the boat then you should adjust the rollers or the winch so that there is a clean "rub-free" line for the strap to follow.
