SUBJECT: # 13533: trailer bunks

Submitted by walt590 (66.168.178.155) from GEORGIA on 5/15/2011 9:08:00 AM

Was wanting advise. got trailer bunk glides, from surfix. there made of the same thing a cutting board is made of. I have an 04 triton tr 19x, fiberglass boat. would any one use these on there trailer. my jell coat had to be redone about 8 months ago because it was blisted. I know i have to make sure the boat is hooked until in the water. I'm looking for advise on wheather this is a good idea or not, the surfix glides that is.


thanks
walter

    learn to back your trailer to the right depth in the water and there's no need for those things...remember it's designed as a drive on trailer....not a float on or a winch it up trailer...back your trailer to the right depth then use the big engine to push your boat the last couple of feet up snug against the winch stop...

    Another thing is to pull the trailer down enough to wet the bunks then pull up to load the boat. It'll slide easier.

    I think he's looking for something that won't trap water under his boat and cause blistering.

    saw a picture of a 20 ft Procraft laying on the ramp recently and that's what you are inviting when you put those things on a regular bass boat trailer..

    I've seen that a couple of times from when they use to make trailers with rollers instead of bunks.

    I used it on the upper(front) part of bunks on an older Stratos 285, with good results. No blisters in 10 years use.
