Towing eye Snare where roller doesn’t reach out far enough.
Example - Here is an example showing an Aluminium boat more commonly used on Towing Eye
(Aluminium) boats. In the first case ‘All is well’ ….. In the second the roller does not reach out far
enough to stop the boat. Here the more vertical post (with the same winch platform) allows the roller
to sit up against the bow with the latch not too far forward.
The solution is the Roller Extender allows a ‘quick fix’ without cutting,
boring or welding.

The Right Winch Post & Winch Platform

However it should be noted that the Fibreglass boat copes
more easily with a winch post that is more laid back,
as opposed to a aluminium boat with a towing eye where a
more vertical post gets the roller in the right position.
