Fibreglass bow platform

Hi guys, my Valiant DR750 is in for tube replacement in Valencia and that's a horror story for another thread. In the meantime I would like to add the fibre platform roller on the bow but have no idea what the official term is for them. Can anyone help with that and if you have one or know of one for sale or where I can get them so much the better!

Tube diameter 60cm.

Thanks in advance

You are looking for a GRP bow fairlead for a RIB.

You might be able to get the GRP moulded locally to your exact spec and then fix the stainless of your choice to it?

Thank you Will,

very kind of you to respond. Time is of the essence sadly as the trailer I am using is costing me 150 eurp per week and the boat is now 500km away. My hope is to find something radius'd correctly and as you say separately purchase a decent roller for them to assemble. I would courier the whole to Valencia then. Their price for this supply only was 500 euro!!!!

Googling "GRP bow fairlead for a RIB" doesn't come up with much at all.

I had my eye on that one and was asking the seller what the radius of curve was. Suppose I shot myself in the foot asking that question here?
