Bow Roller Question
Just picked up my new ski from the dealer and noticed that the polyurethane bow roller is pressing flat against the bow of the ski on one side of the roller, is that normal, or is the ski pulled up to tight? Should the ski be pulled as tight as possible. A bit nervous, don't want to damage the hull over the winter. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!!!!

My boat has poly bow roller and the edges are pressed flat, I think the roller is made flexable to absorb shock...seems normal to me.

Great, Thanks for the response. I checked it out again and actually both sides of the roller are equally flat. I'm guessing that when I launch it in the spring and the pressure comes off the roller it will return to its original shape. Thanks again

I can't tell from your avatar, but it sounds like you have the Triton Elite. I hated the small roller that came with my Triton LT because the edges were sharp and were cutting into the platic bumper on the bow. I replaced it with one of these which are more like the one on the Elite, and it sits flat against the hull like what you are explaining. I think it's supposed to work that way to absorb shock and do a better job securing the bow.

i think it's actually a good thing that the roller is flexible enough to sit flat
don't worry about it
