All, I am looking for suggestions and/or help to find a product if someone makes it (I have searched for hours and not seen anything). I have an 03' Skeeter SX200 that the previous owner smacked the tar out of the trailer front roller/mount and damaged the area where the top cap is secured to the hull under the rub rail. When I unload on a steep ramp it catches the roller and I can see the top cap lift a little and it makes me cringe every time. I would love to take it and have it repaired but with teenagers headed to their selected university this next year I am trying to do this somewhat inexpensively.
I have thought about building a bar that bolts under the front tie down ring and sticks up just a little above the nose and have a plate under the trolling motor to stabilize and strengthen it. In reality it could stick up a little above to help in the event the ramp is steeper than expected, it would kick the front up in stead of going under the roller and causing other issues. I am a welder so this is where I am headed(because cosmetically you can not tell there is an issue) but wanted to see if anyone has seen such a thing before I spend the time fabbing something up.
Thanks in advance for insight and input.
