Thread: Bunk Board Options

    Bunk Board Options

    Hi. Looking at options to replace/reuse exsisting wood carpeted 2x4 bunks on 08 extreme 23ft trailer. Do not like the carriage bols as most have spun and now need to cut off. Was wondering if anyone has run an aluminum/steel channel runner for strength and attached a composite/plastic board with or without carpet?
    Thx in advance.

    We had a customer that switched to Trex decking on his own. Boat slid off trailer at the launch and landed on the rudder, also damaged the prop. Can't remember if we did the strut and shaft...

    Carpet offers good friction co-efficient. We use pressure treated lumber and stainless lags and washers.

    Thx kindly. I was thinking that might be an issue. I think we will stick with the carpet and new 2x4's for this time.

    Did he unhook before backing in? I always leave the front hooked... is that a bad idea? I have seen the videos of trucks following the boat in but I thought that was from leaving the back straps on... I normally get the boat back into the water some myself before getting someone else to back me in the last 5 or so ft and unclip then while getting on the boat. However I dont think I would want the boat sitting directly on anything not carpeted anyways...
