Gravel Roads and Rock Dings

11 posts in this topic

If you have to trailer down gravel, what is the best way to keep the rocks off your boat? Is there something out there that keeps the rocks from flying off your tires and into the hull or something that protects the boat? Thanks for your help.

Bigger mud flaps. A tarp under the boat that goes from bow to the bunkers or rollers

Big mud flaps mounted to your hitch and they make some screens that you can mount on the tongue of your trailer. I cant remember the name but they are made in Canada. Do a google search and you should find it. If I find the name Ill post it here.

I found them and they are called Bow Buddy. Come in many colors and are light and come on and off the trailer very easily. Im in the process of buying a used one.

Only drawback is there are no dealers locally that I found.

I'm sure if a person went where they make boat covers they would be more tha happy to make a vesion of the Bow Buddy

Oh and thankyou for the name of what I was talking about "Northlander". I'm horrible at things like names.

Ive got the Rock Solids and like em. I've got a friend, who in addition to the Tow-Tectors, wraps his trailer frame with packing wrap when he goes into Canada and runs on gravel for a long distance.

Towtector or Kwik-Pfyt. Both great, and easily removable from your truck.

Mud flaps or rock guards on the rear of the tow vehicle will work but the best guards are deflectors that attach to the trailer itself.They are about three quarters of the boat length long and work alot better than flaps and rear rock guards.This plastic(some just use plywood)gaurd basically looks like the shape of a boat hull cut in half mounted to the trailer.Hope this helps.c63Google Rocknockers (I think you'll like these babies!!!!)c63Happy trailering!

Lot's of good ideas, thanks. I went with the Towtector and it should arrive today. I'm looking forward to using it.

    • One day, Donald Trump is going to look a reporter straight in the eyes on national TV and say "I never ran for President".
    • Overkill is good, fixing things at -20 is bad.
    • You will probably have to keep a fan on that Lexan to keep it from completely frosting up, keep the original window close if it was a thermopane.  It wasn't clear if you could or couldn't see out the frosted glass.
    • Maybe a better way to put it is if you vote for Trump you get what you don't deserve...
    • Well I'm sorry but one of your lesser of two evils is going to be the next president.  If you want a continuation of Obama's economic polices, 550% increase in unvented refugees, obamacare, liberal Supreme Court justices,common core education, dilapidated military, all the lies/scandals, etc vote for Hillary, Stien, or Johnson.  Then own it if she is elected.
    • I had the winegard anser and that one was great, even in white out fog I had signal. I purchased and ice castle in 2015 and it came with the crank up and love the crank up, it take a little longer sometime to find signal, but one less thing sitting around.  If you could have an automatic finding one mounted to your house that would be the route I would go.
    • Anyone do any portable mods this off season????? Lets see what you have done
    • Wrong as usual.  If I vote for Trump and it turns out he doesn't do what he says he's going to do then I will get what I deserve.  I know this concept is hard for you and others to understand.  Let's take the list of Supreme Court Justices he says he going to choose from and all of the sudden he starts nominating from left field.  I will get what I deserve.  You will be trying to keep the drool off your keyboard.
