Thought I would start this since there seems to be several people with issues.
Here is my VERY UGLY bow set up. I feel that having the V-Pad on the bow is not correct. It is my gut feeling that the support in fact stresses the hull, and it should be sitting strictly on the boards. Does this sound right?
I know my flatty had just the floater bar, and the Hydro has only the bar also.
My plan is to cut ALL that crap off the front and fab up a float bar while the boat is in place. Does that sound right?
My first Miller had the original little "tab" that the eye slipped into, it worked but the bow would bounce on it while trailering.
As is visible, the boards extend up to the bubble area on the deck, Is that sufficient for support of the whole boat?
