Buying a Bow Stop Replacement is extremely common on boat trailers. They are usually a rubber V on the front of the trailer. They are typically made of thermal plasticized rubber (TPR) or essentially rubber. A Bow stop is installed on the front bracket of the winch stand of the trailer. The stop enables the boat to secure tightly against the boat trailer. The problem with a bow stop is they do not last very long and can sometimes mark up the boat. The purpose of a bow stop is to simply give the boat something to rest against. Many boat owners replace the bow stop every year or two depending on how often it is used, weather etc. With a price tag anywhere from $12 to $50 for one it can add up over the years. So other than buying another bow stop every year what is another option?
