That is what I did. However, I changed the type of anchor I'm using to one that absolutely would not fit on the existing roller. As far as the mounting hole design that is perfectly fine and shouldn't cause any problems. It should not be moving on you at all. The type of roller you choose will be dictated by how the bow pulpit is designed and the type of anchor you're using.
