Non Marking Bow Snubber Blocks

All

Where can I get a 2 part bow snubber block for my trailer, its an SBS1800 with 2 rubbers to create the V, they are about 140mm long and 50x50mm.

I cant seem to find anybody that makes them in non marking blue.
I can buy the standard SBS blocks but they mark the hull.

Help!

Thanks
Adam

I know this isn't going to go down well

Have you considered just covering them with another material?
Like office carpet or lino or Trocal? None of which mark.

Good option, but I would like to replace them if I can.

Thanks though.

Take them off and get a snubbed roller instead. If you brake too hard your boat will have a nice big ding with that design, it will also fix the marking issue.

Sbs sell the bit you need, you basically replace the galvanised part entirely. I swapped mine out to avoid the above, I think it was about 80 quid.
