Tight fit....trailer fender rubbing Redfisher 18 2019


Recommended Posts

2019 Redfisher 18/ AmeraTrail Trailer:  Noticed the portside fender carpeted area is rubbing on hull causing scuffing and wear marks on fiberglass. .  Starboard side has 1-1.5" clearance and is fine.  Just purchased from previous owner and wondering if anybody had this issue.  Will end up taking fender off of portside and moving over 1-1.5" for safe clearance.  Bunker struts are welded to frame and tried to pull boat on trailer very carefully, but end up in same place.   Any suggestions besides moving fender over ?

Is the boat resting against the vertical guide pole in the back of the trailer? Try moving it over about 1/2”-3/4”?  Had similar issues in the past where boat was riding closer to one side or other, and with a slight adjust, it’s easier to move a guide pole than potentially having to redrill fender.  You can measure and mark on the guide pole where it enters the trailer frame and readjust when you drop boat in water next time.
