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.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
