I was admiring Bill's Eliminator when I spotted this...
What is it? Do I need one? Where would I get one?
If it is what I think it is, it may be something I was looking for. Before I saw the pics, I was thinking of just using a simple J stap to secure the front of the boat to the trailer and/or limiting the travel of the bow eye rod (no idea what the proper term is).
I think I read something on the old Hot Boat forum where someone was unfortunate enough to have the rod that secures the bow eye get punched through their hull. I believe it happened when they were retreiving and someone caused a good sized wake which lifted the boat and dropped it on the rod when it was pointing straight up. Anyone remember this?
