Default Need New Bow Stop

I have an Owens Aluminum Slide On trailer for my Formula 271, and want to get rid of the roller bow stop. Is there anybody that makes a bolt on V stop, that uses small carpeted "bunks"? After much searching, I have only found various rubber stops.

BTW: How does one get the yellow "rubber" stuff off the bow?

Thanks

I think I'm going to find a local shop to try and make a Myco-style bow catcher. From what I've seen, whatever rubber they use doesn't mark the boat? didn't think about just going with carpeted pieces...
I've also got a little yellow stain from the roller, maybe a little On/Off (muriatic acid mix) or similar hull cleaner?

I tried the same thing, it was cheaper to order one from Manning. $150 unpainted I think. I think they have the best design.

Call Myco. They just made one for me for my Eagle trailer. Just haven't had time to finish the project yet. Super work and nice to deal with.

My Scarab used to get that stuff on it from the roller too. I just used lacquer thinner on it and it pretty fell off.

I wanted a new bow stop for the same reason.

I wouldn't recomend the carpeted bow stop, it seems to leave black marks on my bow. I would like to switch to the rubber style pads. Steve

Got a pic? Willing to share what they charged, ball park?
My trailer builder is over in Tampa and would probably hook me up, but i'd prefer to have the boat on the trailer so whoever does it can fab/test fit right there.

That was my concern also, that it couldn't be fit properly without having the boat and trailer there for the fabricator to work with.

Manning uses same bow stop for all perf. boats. It will work.

For those still looking, here's another option. Thanks UNSANE.

Now what about the non-marking rubber pieces?
