    Do you know what they use now to treat the wood to protect it against insects? Now that they don't use chromated copper arsenate.

    Oh, trust me , I get that.............My boat is aluminum so it usually stays put, but I've seen some really purty glass boats on the ramp........hurts to watch sometimes ...

    Fir, Douglas 7,230 12,400
    Pine, Ponderosa. 5,320. 9,400
    Pine, White 4,800 8,600
    Pine, Yellow. 8,470 14,500

    The first number is comprehension strength (psi) and second is bending strength. Yellow Pine wins as best choice for bunk boards. Hubbardís Building Supply in Russel Springs and selected 84 Lumber yards carry it treated to keep bugs out. Yellow pine is strong 💪 Both places above carry #1 grade. Stand clear #2.

    I had my pontoon 16 years sitting on carpeted treated lumber bunks and no aluminum pontoon discoloration or pitting occurred. No aluminum reaction

    Yes. Also if your boat is aluminum. I have seen the copper in carpeted treated wood eat the aluminum above the carpet. ie my aluminum live well sitting on top of carpet on top of a treated plywood deck. The copper wicked up through the carpet and dripped down onto the hull. I got $180 for the boat at the scrap yard.

    Here is a photo of the hull and the junk yard. In the hull shot you can see where the copper in the treated wood dripped down.

    Plastic Bunk slides that screw onto the wood

    Be very careful when launching your boat after adding these plastic slides to the bunks on the trailer. The boat will slide off so fast that it may come off before you get the boat into the water. So make sure that you keep the safety rope tied onto the boat and trailer until you are close to the water. My boat slides off the trailer very fast now. Before it would barely slide off and would not come off the boat trailer until the trailer was submerged in the water and the boat could float up off the trailer. Carpet only won't let the boat slide off on my trailer very well. But after I screwed on some of the plastic slides on the wooden trailer boards the boat comes right off the trailer.

    I had Salyer's recover the bunks on my skiff trailer a couple of years ago. I don't remember exactly what I paid but I remember thinking it was a good deal and they did a great job...

    Iím able to use less winch

    Some boats allow a little deeper back ins. Every watch somebody cranking there arm off? Most boats I load top of wheel fender a inch or so showing works. I know they are all different but design you shouldnít have to be on steroids
    Trailer info try it sometime
    Go a little deeper
