    Default Trailer Bunks

    So I need/want to replace the bunks on my trailer. The only way I can think of making this happen would be to take all the needed tools and materials to the lake, launch the boat and then do the trailer work in the parking lot. I know I have read of some people taking the boat off the trailer in the garage at their house but I cant find anything now.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to make this happen with out making the drive all the way to the water just to do trailer work???
    Sold the miller...bought an open bow Kachina!!

    floor jacks and blocks - lift it a foot off the trailer and block it up off the outer fram rails -- easiest is to measure your bunks and pre build them then when your at the lake , swap them out

    I did this at the beginning of the season, I was too chicken to block the boat.

    I measured up the wood...cut to length...resined the wood...cut the carpet...bought all the hardware and drove on down.

    I did a little test before I left the garage to make sure the nuts would come off easily...it did...and it was THE ONLY one that did.

    bring a sawzall, drill, couple bits (to counter sink) staple gun, etc and you can fix your trailer in the morning and boat in the afternoon.

    otherwise...drill,

    did it this way on 3 different boats, works like a charm. Just do 1 side at a time.
