Expert Answers about Boat Trailer Parts


  • Boat Keel Is Cutting Keel Roller When Launching Boat
  • It does look like the weight of the boat may be too much for the keel rollers that you are using from the photo which is why the keel is digging into the roller. You could replace the rubber keel rollers with plastic like CE Smith Keel Roller for Boat Trailers part # CE29516 if your bracket is 5" wide with a 5/8" diameter shaft. The plastic construction will do a better job at supporting the keel. Ideally the trailer would have another cross member to add another keel bracket assembly and...

  • Is the Installation of the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System Easy or Hard?
  • The installation process of the Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System -part # AR84FR is very easy and can be done by you easily. It will use u bolts to wrap around the trailer frame and you will then tighten them down with either a 9/16" or 5/8" socket. Not 100% sure but I think it is the 9/16". The only issue with installation will be the boat needing to not be on the trailer when you do it. As for the size you want the only thing that changes is the spring tension...

  • Recommended Roller Bunks Replacement for Wooden Bunks for G3 1860 Boat
  • We do have a variety of roller bunks that can be used as a direct replacement for carpeted bunks.

  • Bunk Board Guide On Kit Recommendation for Trailer with Wider Outside Frame Channels
  • Since the outside frame channel on your trailer is about as wide as your boat you'd need to go with a guide on that has a 90 degree angle for the upright posts instead like the part # CE27600K90 so that you'll get closer contact like you need.

  • Can Post Style Guide Ons Be Used on the Front of a Boat Trailer
  • Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, like # CE27646 are designed to help you load your boat onto your trailer. Because the rear of the trailer is backed into the water, it makes it really hard to see if you're loading it straight onto the trailer. The top portion of the Guide-Ons that is above the water give you a visual reference, making it easier to line up your boat with your trailer. That being said, if you would like to add a second set to the front of your trailer, there is...

  • Can Carpeted Bunks Replace Roller Bunks on Boat Trailer to Make for Easier Launch
  • Roller bunks will make what you are trying to do incredibly easy as the boat will basically want to roll off on it's own and not require you to push it off. So without knowing what length your bunks are overall you have a few options to get the best length setup. You could use a combination of 5 foot sections like part # DL21741 and 4 foot sections like part # DL21740 to get the best length possible. These even could bolt directly to your carpeted bunks for an easier install. Or we...

  • 60 Inch or 24 Inch Bunk Guides for Boat Trailer
  • Since you mentioned wanting the most stability and not always being perfect when loading (understandably), I think the longer, 5 foot (60 inch) CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27600 is the best option as it will give you the most stability and assistance in guiding your boat all the way on your trailer. The 2 foot (24 inch) CE Smith Bunk-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27660 are certainly not something that will be inadequate, but the longer guide-ons are really...

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Come In Galvanized Version

The rollers are constructed of 12-gauge, galvanized steel and have zinc-plated steel rollers hardware included. This is considered an upgraded version of the standard Dutton-Lainson roller bank because it includes 12 sets of 3 rollers compared to the 2 rollers.

If you look at the picture you took it looks like those fasteners holding your current brackets could be U-Bolts in this orientation. I'm not sure what your frame size is but I'm linking our list of U-Bolts that you can check out if your current hardware is in need of replacing.

  • CE Smith CE27610 Guide-On Rollers For 14 Foot Lowe Sea Nymph Fishing Boat
  • The # CE27610 CE Smith Roller Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers would be absolutely perfect for your application. The rollers will do a great job of redirecting the bow of your boat when you're trying to load up the boat on the trailer in less than ideal conditions. The guide-ons will fit trailer frame members up to 3 wide x 4-1/4 inches tall, right out of the box, or for frame members that are up to 3 wide x 5-1/4 inches tall, 2 of the extended length U-bolt kits would be needed, part # CE11416.

  • Available Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers
  • There is no one set correct length of guide-ons for a particular boat since the length you need can vary depending on the pitch of the boat ramp and how much of the trailer ends up submerged. The design of the trailer itself also matters since this affects where they can mount. You may also have a preference for a longer or shorter set or for one type or another, such as a roller style like # CE27610 or # FBGR200101 or a post-style like # CE27648. You can see all guide-ons we offer...

  • 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.

  • Why are CE Smith 60 Guide-On Kits Priced Differently
  • Part of the difference in price is based on supply-and-demand, competitive pricing, and our price from the manufacturer. Although these have the same dimensions for the Guide-Ons both kits use different mounting techniques. The part # CE27640 uses U-Bolts which fit frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" (can be upgraded up to 5-1/4" tall frames with U-Bolt Kit # CE11416) while the part # CE27648 uses I-Beam clamps instead which are compatible with frames up to 4" wide. So even though they are...

  • Where To Install a CE Smith Self Centering Keel Roller

In regards to installation, these will need to be installed towards the stern of the boat, in the center of the trailer. This would be the only place that would allow them to effectively center...

  • Replacement Rollers and Fenders For 1996 Shorelandr Trailer
  • The rollers that you need based off of the measurements in your photo is Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller part # YR530R-8P which is a 3x5" ribbed roller with a 1" shaft opening. The fender is a bit harder for me to confirm without measuring. It was very common for the older 1996 Shorelandr boat trailers to have 13" wheels, so you may be able to use Fulton Single Axle Trailer Fender with Top and Side Steps part # F008573 depending on the measurement between the mounting brackets.

  • Trailer Bunk Carpet for 14 ft long 2x4 Bunk Boards
  • To make your own bunk boards, pressure treated pine has long proven to be the best kind of treated wood to use because it holds up well and it is strong enough to support a boat. To wrap around the 14 ft long 2 x 4 bunk boards (actually 1.5 x 3.5), you'll need carpet that is around 14-1/2 ft long and just over 10 inches wide. Our closest option is going to be the CE Smith Deluxe Marine-Grade Carpeting # CE11349. I've linked an installation video for you to check out at the bottom...

  • Roller Bunks Needed for Boat Trailer Carrying a 2014 Tahoe Q7i
  • We do have roller bunks that you can utilize on your boat trailer! For your 10' bunks use 2 of the 5' long bunks, part # DL21741 or # DL21755, and then use 2 of the 4' lengths # DL21740 or # DL21754 for your 8' bunks. just be mindful that the 5' long rollers have a weight rating of 3,000 lbs and the 4' long rollers have a weight rating of 2,500 lbs. All this means is that you don't want more that that much of the 2014 Tahoe Q7i's weight resting on a single set of the rollers at one time.

  • Replacement Wobble Roller Needed with 1" Shaft for Older Boat Trailer

If you need it to have a larger diameter than 4" then you need to bump up to the 5" diameter like the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller for EZ Loader Boat Trailers # YR500YW-8PEZ. If you still have the original rollers on your boat trailer and the trailer is as old as your boat then it is entirely possible that the roller...

That said, there are plenty of other fasteners you can use to attach these. I recommend standard self-tapping screws like part # FA1131822 as this will be easiest.

A better option is to use the Yates Side Guide Roller 12" Long # YR12243-5 instead, which uses a 5/8" shaft, along with bracket # 408300, shaft and pal nuts # CE10727A.

If you need a washer to go along with it you'd need the part # CE10983 and for a retainer ring part # CE10981.

Then, in order to support both the port and starboard sides you can use part # CE27600. I have attached a photo of a similar setup with bunk boards instead of bunk rollers for the hull.
