Have an 09 1725 Lund Pro Guide on a 09 Shorelander trailer and notice that the bow of the boat is getting scuff marks from hitting the Boat Buckle transon tie downs. Any one else have this problem? Maybe I am not putting the trailer deep enough in the water when loading?

Buy a set of guides for the trailer. They help in the wind and current. I like the tall post style. Gives me something to hold on to when getting in and out of the boat.

Forgot to mention that my trailer is a bunk, and it has the Shorelander guides - probably smaller than what is mentioned in the above post.

It has to do with placement of your boat buckels. You may need to do some rearangeing somewhere. If intalled correctly they should never get hit by the boat.

Dave, are your boat buckles bolted on or welded in place?

My Boat Buckles are bolted onto the hole where traditional transom tie downs would be attached. They came with the Shorelander trailer. The Buckles do stick out farther (a few inches) toward center, than the metal that they are attached to. I assume this setup must be standard on the Shorelanders that Lund ships. I have rash marks on both sides of the bow about half way down to the keel. I am thinking I need to put the trailer deeper in the water, if no one else is having this problem. Probably better that the bow is hiting the plastic of the Buckles rather than the bare metal of the transom tie down part. Since no one is having a similar problem, must be the operator! Any other ideas?

Post a pic, it would make it a lot easier to figure out.

I'll have to wait on the pics. First time out this spring, I am going to take a close look at where the bow meets the bunks and note the clearance of the Boat Buckles. Sure is confusing where the marks could be coming from. Thanks for all your ideas.

Dave... nope..your are the only one I heard of with that going on.
Looking forward to those pics.
