Replacement Keel Roller Brackets for a Tee Nee Boat Trailer with 3 Inch Rollers

Question:

is this 3inch roller only used at the front of the boat in front of the winch? I have an older tee nee trailer and it has a 3inch roller on the back and the middle but the brackets that hold them are all rotted and I cant find a 3inch adjustable bracket to hold them.

Expert Reply:

The 3 inch rubber bow roller, # 404800, that you referenced is typically used at the front of the boat near the winch. The rollers that are usually used in the middle and rear are keel rollers. Often times, the v shape of the 3 inch bow roller is too deep for the middle or rear end of a boat hull.

I did some research on your Tee Nee trailer and it looks like there are a few different styles that will affect the type of brackets that you will use.

If you have frame rails that run perpendicular to the boat, then I recommend using a set of angle mounting brackets like part # CE10211G. These brackets can be mounted at any width to fit your rollers and use a 1/2 inch diameter roller shaft. The shortest 1/2 inch diameter roller shaft we carry is part # CE10700A, which should work well with your 3 inch rollers.

If your rollers are in poor shape, I recommend replacing them with slightly longer keel rollers like our Yates V Keel Roller, # YR5213-4P, if you have space available. You can use the same angle brackets, but you will need a longer roller shaft like part # CE10701A.

If the rollers mount to one center beam that runs parallel to the boat, then I recommend using the CE Smith Adjustable Mounting Brackets for Keel Rollers, # CE32004G. These brackets would bolt around the center beam and use a 5/8 inch diameter roller shaft. Depending on the width of the center beam, you may need longer rollers to use this bracket. If your trailer has the center beam, I would be happy to provide a roller and roller shaft recommendation if you can tell me the width of the beam.
