Default Bow stop covers??

Just bought a new Manning trailer...they use black carpet on the V style bow stop and that leaves black marks on the boat..heard the rubber ones do the same as well..

anything to cover them up with that works????

Call Myco and order one from them, their newer style stop doesn't leave a mark.

I tried every "non-marring" roller out there. Here's what I finally settled on - microfiber towels wrapped around the rollers. Problem solved.

The grey silicon/rubber pads from Myco are fine. Just shoot them with a little spray silicone, Plexxus, or NautiCare before you load the boat. No marks and boats slides up slick as AstroGlide.
