just a few quick questions before i head off to home depot and buy some supplies
1 what kind of wood should i buy to cover in carpet?
2 does a wider bunk help distribute the weight of the boat better or would it be a drawback to use more than a 2x4 (loading, travel shifting, ect.)
3 should my boat sit on the rollers all the time as it does now (see pics)or should the weight just be on the bunks? i would think the rollers are just for loading
these seem like fairly straight forward questions but it also seems my trailer at one time had a different boat on it, and this one was made to fit, and poorly at that. better to ask first and do it once
Not sure about the roller, but I used pressure treated 2x6 with marine carpet from an interior supply shop, hope this helps
BTW my boat does not sit on the roller, but my friend who has the same boat and same trailer does, so go figure.
yes on the pressure treated wood, I used 2x4 green board when I did mine. Came out good. I found that the carpet store gave away scraps big enough to do all four boards and the side skirts by the fenders, so that didn't cost me anything which was even better...
