Pete at Smoothwatersports has been selling this jack with a homemade plate so you can bolt it up to a Boatmate trailer. I purchased one a month or so ago and did the install today. It took about 30 minutes, start to finish.
When removing the original jack, you've gotta trim the stud so the plate fits flat. After that, it's completely bolt-on. All hardware was included and it was all straight forward. The new jack is a lot more sturdy. Cranking seems to be the same but I only turned it about 3 turns.
That looks so much better than the stock one... I have an 07 SSV24 and mine looks all jacked up and bent... Where did you get that jack? website or phone#
Also I see you pulled the Boat buddy off, Does the roller work any better & do you tie down the back of the boat when hauling it? Jerry (@ Boatmate) sold me a roller and i'm about to put it on this week...
The roller is much better. The bowstop on my trailer was too high, so last year I took it to Boatmate and had them rebuilt it. They also strengthened the upright bunkmounts with gusset plates. I also dealt with Jerry, and he's an excellent person to deal with.
I do tie the transom down with the Boat Buckle straps. I highly recommend them, great product.
