Does anyone have a picture of the rubber roller set up of the front of there trailer for a 21' Eliminator Daytona. I don't like the way mine is set up and don't think it has enough support in the front. Any suggestions would be great. Thought about putting one of the small round cones in the center buy don't know if that would be better or not.

I'll try to get a picture of mine this evening. If I forget, you can speak badly of me to all your friends.

I don't even have a roller, just a floater bar on my 21.

The bunks go pretty far forward and the trailer is 2 x 6 box tubing.

Are you getting a lot of flex when you push down on the front of the boat while on the trailer?

The trailer is very solid. And maybe I am not getting a lot of flex but i can push down on the bow and make the boat move. Is this normal?

I have an aluminum trailer, and I have a shitload of flex. I'll try to take a pic tonight of my roller setup, which really helps the ride, but creates launch issues on steep ramps. I'll live with this before I ever go with a float bar setup.

Looks like the vee shaped roller that goes between the metal brackets is missing. Only the side rollers are there.

Only problem is on real steep ramps and it's not that big of a deal

Donny, you did a hell of a job on this setup. I like it a lot. The only thing to remember is to loosen up the strap before the transom hits the water and allows some slack. Without it, the eye pulls down and acts like a fulcrum.

Yup same here...just drop the float bar and it's out of the way...makes no difference how steep the ramp is.
Plus since it "floats" it automatically adjust when putting in/or taking it out > :)sphss
