Patio door roller replacement

A handy person from Maryland says:
I'm sorry, I cannot identify the maker of the door. The door is installed on a Trojan Houseboat (1973). I'm assuming it to be original equipment. I already removed both rollers before accessing your site.
I would be interested in replacing with a roller you would recommend. Thank you for your consideration, hope to hear from you soon. Gary

Hello, Gary! I believe your older roller assembly has been replaced with the newer style 81-012. Look it over and let me know what you think. My only hesitation is based on the fact this is for a boat; boat hardware tends to be a little different from what we provide. I can't be totally sure if our roller will work.

Paul,
Thank you for your follow up to me regarding needed patio door rollers. I immediately ordered the rollers you recommended and look forward to installing them.

Thank you! We greatly appreciate the order. Please let me know how it goes!

Paul,
The rollers you recommended for my patio door (81-012)have the door rolling like new! The only challenge was the old mounting screws did not fit the new roller. I was able to use the adjusting screws that came with the new rollers to mount the new rollers. I'll just need to purchase two more screws for adjustment.
Thank you again for your help, your assistance made this repair much easier.
