easy slide bunk pads

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone used these easy slide bunk pads? I was thinking about getting some for my 20ft alum. boat because its so hard to get it off the trailer in a shallow landing. The only thing keeping me from ordering them is they say its not recommended for painted hulls. I cant think of too many boats neededing slicks that are not painted. any thought would be appreciated.

I have Ultimate Bunk Boards on one of my trailers. You might want to google them.

One thing! If you do install these, check them often for wear! A buddy of mine installed them on his ranger trailer. They worked great, but wore down so, that the screw heads were above the pads. Cost him big bucks to repair the bottom of the boat.

Do not use them with a rivoted hull. They catch, not good. Hard on rivots, chip the pads.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
