BIGVEE™ has a huge 375mm wide Vee shaped catch area, so when you drive on, even if you are off centre then the Vee shape will catch your boat and guide you back into the centre.

All professional fisherman “drive on”. They understand the risks and difficulties of attempting to manually move a boat onto a trailer against the wind and tide. They also have no interest in the physical effort winching a boat up a trailer involves. Plus driving on is a huge time saver.

As one professional fisherman said to us “Would you drive your car up to your garage and then attach a winch to pull it in through the garage door?”

BIGVEE™ replaces the narrow bow stops that have been in existence for the last 80 years. Those old bow stoppers were designed to provide a soft surface for your boat to sit against once your boat is winched forward into place. Unlike BIGVEE™ most of them offer no or very little guiding ability.

BIGVEE™ is “One size fits all”.  Every BIGVEE™ comes in kit form and can be easily fitted at home or by your favourite boating shop.

BIGVEE™ replaces existing bow stops with a mounting width from 75mm and up to 120mm (3 inch up to 4`3/4 inch). The metal shims provided with every BIGVEE™ kit allow it to adapt easily within this broad size range.

BIGVEE™ is used if you have a centre bolt sized M12 or M16 (1/2 inch or 5/8 inch) If you have the larger M16 bolt size you will use our high tensile strength M12 bolt along with the simple spacer rings we provide to achieve as much strength as you had with your M16 bolt.

BIGVEE™ drive on boat trailer is also very great use for boatcatch or boat retrieval systems. So if your trailer uses a bolt smaller than M12 you can still use the BIGVEE™ by drilling your trailer up to 12mm.


  • Made to suit new trailers or to be fitted to existing builds.
  • Has a super wide VEE guiding ability.
  • Is locked tightly in place through the steel centre that can never crush.
  • Is fixed in place without possibility of the centre bolt bend.
  • Has a secondary lock allowing you to rotate and set the Vee in the correct orientation to your boat bow.
  • This “one size fits all” design locates in the same position as your old bow stopper.
  • Suits trailers with bow stopper spacing from 75mm up to 120mm (use the provided spacers to adjust).
  • Replaces bow stoppers with both M12 and M16 bolts (1/2 inch and 5/8 inch bolts). Grade 8 galvanised main bolt supplied.
  • Made from galvanised steel with a protective polyurethane coating.It gives you boat protection from rub as you drive on and gives vibration insulation whilst traveling on roads.
  • The solid galvanised steel centre actually has the added benefit of strengthening the trailers 2 upright arms. This means they can withstand a higher impact from the boat if you were ever to driving on too fast.
