Difficult to remove boat from Trailer

6 posts in this topic

I have a 16" Spartan Roller trailer ('93) and have to really push on this thing to get it off the trailer. It has many rollers on the back of the trailer but a small single roller near the front and one Center roller in the middle.

I replaced the front small roller and put on a new self-centering roller in the middle but it is still very difficult to launch off the trailer and will not be fun in the cold weather.

Can you guys think of anything for me to try?

Maybe lower those 2 new rollers to try and relieve a bit of pressure?

I can post pics if it would help everyone.

Thanks!

Are you backing the boat in far enough? I know it is a dumb question, but with rollers, you shouldnt have an issue.

Back in until the boat floats than pull up just enough for you to unhook the boat without getting wet. This will make it easier. Also if that dont work its time to lube up them rollers.

You can replace the center rollers with urethane ones. The harder rollers will make the launching easier.

If you have bunks on the side, also check that the center rollers are not set to low, causing the boat to drag on the bunks.

try greasing the rollers or spraying with silocon to loosen them up a bit..

If your trailer does have bunk's on the side's, give them a generous spraying with silicone spray. Be sure you wait until the carpeting on them is dry. Ever since I did that to my bunk's my boat almost launch's itself! Good luck! 1DIRTBALL
