question about a bunk trailer

4 posts in this topic

My brother and I have a bunk trailer for our boat. He'd like to put on teflon slides over the bunks. He's got teflon strips (home made) and wants to screw them into the wood of the bunks. I'm pretty hesitant to do this as I'm afraid that the wood screws will work loose and rip up the bottom of the boat. Anyone have any suggestions or info. regarding this manner?

scoot, just be sure to countersink the heads and use long enough screws 2" so they hold deep, you could also predrill the holes and fill with glue, but you may want to replace something sometime and the glue may make it tough.

I've never used these. But I would think spraying the bunks with silicone would be a much better option. See my comments under the "boat trailer" thread.

I fought for years with the bunks. Finally got smart and went to fleet farm and got replacement roller bunks-$49.99 best move you will make! Slides right off, cranks on without any effort.

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?

    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
