Measurement of Deep V Keel Roller Assembly

Typically installed upright on the rear and middle crossmembers of a boat trailer, keel roller panel bracket assemblies help to keep the boat moving while it is being loaded and to stabilize the keel.


Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel parts are hot-dipped in zinc after being stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

The website is very helpful and well thought out. I liked the video descriptions of your products - especially the measurements which was very helpful in ordering the correct size. The V Keel Roller Assembly that I purchased is extremely sturdy and worth the price. My plans for using it are a bit unconventional - I am attaching it to the rear of my car Kayak rack to facilitate rolling my Kayak onto the carrier by myself. Buying the parts I needed from the rack company would have been four times what I paid for the Roller Assembly from etrailer.com. 194079

I added 3 sets of these to my trailer to keep my keep keel from making any contact with my transverse beams on my trailer. After a year they're still doing the job and look brand new. I fresh water rinse them thoroughly at the end of the day and they've required no other maintenance. Don't forget to buy a high quality set of non ferrous hardware with nylocks to secure them. Happy customer right here. 469427

I installed this roller atop a 1x6 plank across the forward part of my trailer to provide more support to the bow of my 20' sailboat. The arrangement turned out better than expected as the boat now rolls easily on and off the trailer with no more heavy lifting for me. 376883

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • Keel Roller Assembly Similar to a Roller Bunk
    Though we have roller bunks like # DL21741 and a Deep V Keel Roller Assemblies such as the 8" # CE10403G and 12" # CE10455G, we do not carry what would amount to a combination of the two. We also carry Keel Roller Assemblies that attach to either 2" trailer tongues # CE32005G or 3" trailer tongues # CE32003G. I've attached links to video reviews of these products for you to take a look at.

  • Does CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller CE10403G Have a Weight Capacity
    The rubber keel roller # CE10403G does not have a weight capacity though it is designed to support the added weight of heavier boats. At any given time, it is not likely that any one roller will have to support the entire weight of the boat so it is not really a concern. If you are replacing a roller then the key is to get one that is the same size as the previous roller.

  • Recommended Keel Roller For Best Weight Capacity on Boat Trailer
    The Yates Keel Roller for Boat Trailers - Super-Heavy-Duty Rubber - 18" Long - 5/8" Shaft # YR18244-165EC is not weight rated. The weight of the boat will actually be on the bracket and the 5/8 inch shaft that runs through the heavy-duty roller. Your application with the front weight the roller is more likely to bend the longer you make the roller. For instance the 18 inch roller along with the brackets # CE10500G and Roller Shaft w/Cap Nuts 19" x 5/8" # 107-30A will be more likely...

  • Replacement Roller Assembly for Deep-V Style Boat Trailer
    If you just want to replace the roller assembly you have now then the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10401G is what I recommend. However, if you are having trouble aligning with the roller then you might want to consider a larger roller assembly like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10403G which is 8" wide. These options will both work great with your deep v style hull. In order to attach either option you can reuse the mounting hardware that you have now.

  • Availability of 7-1/2-inch-long V-Shaped Replacement Keel Roller for Boat Trailer
    My contact at Yates Rubber advises that a nominal 8-inch keel roller does not measure exactly 8 inches; typically they are slightly smaller than the specified size, much the way a piece of 2 x 4 lumber is not exactly 2-inches by 4-inches. I took measurements of several replacement rollers and confirmed that the 8-inch size generally measures 7-5/16 (just the roller itself) and 7-3/4 inches including the nylon bushings on each end. For example, the Dutton-Lainson # DL21712 is a nominal...

  • Boat Trailer Roller Brackets and Pal Nuts
    Most boat trailer bow and keel rollers do use pal nuts like # CE10801 to secure the rubber roller to the support shaft and mounting bracket. From your photo I cannot tell quite what type of set-up you have. Since most of our rollers use galvanized mounts like # CE10403G and the others shown on the other linked page it may be easier and safer to install a new roller bracket.

  • 8 inch Keel Roller and Bracket Recommendation
    Sounds like you are looking for the part # CE10403G. The slotted mounting holes would allow it to be mounted at various heights to match what your trailer needs. The slots of the bracket are 6 inches apart as well. I attached a review video for the roller for you to check out as well.

  • Replacement Keel Roller for my Calkins Boat Trailer
    I have a couple of solutions but the sizes aren't exactly what you're after. I instead recommend using the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers part # CE10405G to replace the 11.5" roller you currently have. This will allow for adjusting it to match your boats hull. Use CE Smith U-Bolts part # CE15283GA-2 if your hardware is missing or damaged. For the 7.5" use the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly for Boat Trailers part # CE10403G with the same hardware as mentioned...

  • Would Dutton-Lainson DL21741 Roller Bunks Contact Keel of Boat
    The # DL21741 Deluxe Roller Bunk would bolt to the bunk boards, which are designed to support the sides of the boat, not the keel. Therefore, the aft portion of the bunk rollers wouldn't contact the boat's keel. A series of keel rollers like # CE10403G would be used to support the keel.
