Bunk Boards

6 posts in this topic

Hey guys I am putting bunk boards on my boat trailer. What would you recommend for space on either side so I can still get my boat on the trailer easily? Thanks

Are you talking about walking boards on a roller type trailer (to walk down and hook the boat on the winch)

or

actual bunks themselves (not a roller trailer)

Enough so the widest part of your boat will go through without rubbing.

Yeah it is a roller type trailer and I am putting these on the sides just to keep waves from pushing the boat off to the side too much when driving it back on in windy conditions . I don't know if there is some general rule of thumb here, but I'll heed Northlander's advice and just play with it till I get to where it works for me. Thanks.

I have gone back and forth on getting these as I often load and unload by myself. Everytime I am close to pulling the trigger I hear another story about someone scraping the side of there boat (over time) and giving it "dock" rash. As I would rather have my boat stay nice and clean, I opt for taking a little more time when loading and do without the fenders. I am interested to hear "expert" opinions one way or the other. I did not mean to hijack your post, just making you aware of something I have heard - may or may not be a factor to you. Good Luck! Paul

I have a bunk trailer and a 19' ProV, I think there is about 3" of free space on each side. The side boards are covered in carpet so they dont scratch if you do bump into them. Love it, can get on the trailer straight pretty much first time everytime regardless of wind.

    • Rand Paul has put together a plan, and there are others, as well.   But as long as there is the requirement put forth by Trump and the Democrats that everyone will have healthcare coverage, whether they can pay for it or not, it's probably DOA...     https://www.paul.senate.gov/news/press/dr-rand-paul-unveils-obamacare-replacement-act  
    •   The only way to prevent single payer is for the Republicans to miraculously pull some other "terrific" plan out of their bums that they haven't been able to come up with in the last 7 years.   Good luck.
    •   I noticed you failed to provide examples.  
    • You can never have to many frogs.
    • They can come up with a workable healthcare law.   The hard (impossible) part is coming up with a workable healthcare law with all winners and no losers, as that is the requirement.
    • KVD is a hammer on Toledo. He is the only one I have slotted in for sure. A lot of really good sticks struggle on Toledo. I imagine 30+ percent of people will pick Hackney, but he really doesn't have a stellar track record there. This will be an interesting one. IIRC, many of their past stops at TB have been later in the year, like second week of May. A lot will depend on when the fish there spawn. Could be a tough transition bite, or it could be a freakin' amazing postspawn smashfest.
    • I am no expert, but I am guessing that you will be advised to put some insulation under it, and if you don't have insulation under the slab now, that may be an issue. I would also think that it would be better to keep your foundation/slab one piece for all. But again, i am not an expert in the least! We do have infloor heating in our cabin slab and it is very nice, and the off-peak/dual-fuel electric pricing makes it nice and affordable heat. Very nice on the feet in winter, and keeps the gas bill very low.   If you don't have off-peak/dual-fuel pricing then the electric may get very very expensive to run, especially without proper insulation missing from part of it.   Good luck.
    •   Nailed It!!!  Way too much tinkering went on...some of that brought on by Fletch...Hansal, White/Schroeder, Stewart for a 4th line would be just fine too...they have to dial in these remaining games to have the consistency needed for the playoffs.
    • If you want to keep it simple, buy a bunch of black Booyah Pad Crashers. They're relatively inexpensive (compared to some frogs, anyway), pretty durable, and draw tons of strikes. You can mess with different colors for fun, but you can't really go wrong with black.

      Terminator's new(ish) frogs are also amazingly good, and cast and walk better than Booyahs IMO.
    • Time to put Zucker back up with Granny and Koivu.  Sometimes when he gets pushed down in the lineup he stops working as hard.  Put him back on #1 line and he will pick it up. Then Parise, Staal and Pommer.  Put Coyle, Nino and Haula together.   Was fun shifting the lines every game early on, but time to settle in.
