I was wondering if anyone has these on their trailer? Been thinking about getting a pair but the max load on both of them is 3000# and I have a 23' center console with a 225 hp on the back, any input is appreciated.

Don't undo the wench strap until you are ready for it to unload. Be ready to wench it on when loading.

Sounds like an easy way to get a boat landed on the cement.

Pop’s put those on his boat back in the 70’s and the bottom of the boat where the rollers were caused a ripple effect and eventually caused cracks down the center of the boat that actually was what resulted in a design flaw that the factory covered under warranty. As soon as he got the boat back bought a new trailer with a lower slung cradle and 2x6 carpeted bunks and kept that boat until 1992. I don’t think I would use them even now with technology being better than the 70’s that’s a lot of weight on several single points in the roller bed as opposed to a flat surface spread over the same area. But that is just my opinion for what it’s worth.

I think the rollers are intended to be used with lighter weight boats.

The pressure on the hull is going to be concentrated in a few contact points as oppsed to the weight being evenly distributed. I would not do it.
Look into the bunk board made of plastic type materials. I think Ultimate Bunk Boards is what I went with and really like them.
