    Trailer bow guards


    Gbracer
    • Year: 2007 Brand: Nautique / CC Model / Trim: 226 Cost: $0-$249 Installation Shop: self

    I got this boat that had NEVER been on a trailer, not a chip os scratch on the bow from towing.

    I made a set of gaurds for the front of the trailer to protect the bow .

    Made brackets tht clamped onto trailer trailer is brand new so not drilling into it.

    Bent up frames from 1" aluminum tube and had them powder coated black.

    Had my Mom sew up the mesh covers added gromets and wala!!!

    They work extremly well, have towed to Lake Havasu and various smaller trips no hasstles.

    To launch I take the left side one of briefly release the whinch strap and safety strap and then put it back on till we reload the boat.

    Sorry about the order of the pics lol

    That's pretty cool @Gbracer.   Thanks for sharing it.   I've seen lots of mud flap mods on the tow vehicle side to help protect the boat, but this one definitely provides the most protection I've ever seen.  Now just make sure you don't ram the dock once you're on the water.   That's what would happen to me.  lol
