One of the most commonly overlooked, but probably most important, pieces of boating equipment is the boat trailer. Without the trailer, the boat would not make it to the water. Trailers consist of a frame, axles, bearings, hubs, tires, runners, rollers, winch, and lights. Some boat trailers are equipped with trailer brakes. Each piece of the trailer is important and demands periodic inspections. Keel and bow stop rollers are of special importance because they position and help guide the boat for placement. With time they may get gummy with debris and work ineffectively, or they will become cracked and brittle from overuse or exposure to the elements. Many rollers are found on boat trailers that have a hand winch or power winch to pull the boat up onto the trailer. The rollers are designed to provide a minimum amount of resistance and allow the boat to roll up to the winch stand. The way the rollers are mounted is supposed to help center the boat as well.
