If it were mine, I would add an upper roller, and drop the whole unit that is mounted on the post.

If you flip it over, believe me, you will not like it.

That's what I did when launching it and retrieving it and it still wasn't enough, Denny.  Although I've never seen the winch upside down, it would be a first for sure but it might give me the clearance that I'm looking for even if I need to add additional things like you mentioned.  I just don't want to back the boat any further than it is and adding rollers and especially a stopper like the one bellow will keep the boat even further back.  Now if this V thing had rollers on it, that might help push the bow up before it reached the winch?

You don't reposition the boat, you fit the post and rollers and leave the boat where it is.

That is the way I did mine.

Mine has 2 rollers and the bow eye rests up under the top roller.

Adding a second roller will achieve the same thing.

Ok, I trust you 100%.  I just looked through EZ Loader's site for a keel roller similar to that and didn't see anything.  I'll keep looking at other sites for aluminum ones.

In the meantime I saw this.  Kinda drops the winch a bit out of the way.

I know how you like to make things.

Take the whole unit and slide it down the post.

Design 2 metal plates to mount on your existing roller.

Then add the 2nd roller to the top of the metal plates.

Everything can be custom fitted, I'm sure that that will be well within your expertise.

Maybe adding a bow roller to the front part of the trailer will bump the nose up so your anchor will clear.

You might have to do both.

This looks like it would be a good job for a couple of guys and a 6pack.:)

Holy He!l...what a project :D:beer-7687-1::clapsmiley:.

Thanks, Drew.  Nothing near what you did on that Sea Ray, that's for sure.  And doing it so that you wouldn't be just passing it on to an unsuspecting buyer is even more admirable of you.  Hopefully there was some return to all that work.
