Now that you mention it...

I will have to get a pic of my bow stops, maybe tonight, but I may be looking for a better safety tie down for my bow.
Currently I have 2 safety hoops on the trailer and a 10,000# ratchet strap holding the bow eye down to the safety hoops. It's a pain to use the ratchet strap.

A big urethane roller bow stop with a winch strap and a safety chain.

I seem to be the only one with this worthless POS set up I haven't trailered much, so I am just now noticing how bad it is If the ramp is not steep, and the trailer is not deep in the water the bow won't get over the top of the stop

Why couldn't you just mount the stop lower. Maybe fabricate a bracket to move it down 18 inches or so.

I have modified it again by cutting the stop out and replacing it with a movable jack style that I put a impact into and spin up or down approx. 12" so it is out of the way on steep ramps. In this photo I have already cut and lowered the winch and moved it forward so the bow would not hit on steep ramps..
