For those that are curious, Iv included a pic of the shrink wrapped u'bolts and the plastic bearing assemble of each quite well with each roller centered and spinning freely. I have cross drilled each roller to allow me to shoot some grease down onto the running surface from time to time.

As always, any and all coments welcome.....

I love them. I have a similar set up on my very old 20ft Bertram. The whole trailer rusted and the only thing I kept when I built a new one were the alloy wheels for sentimental reasons and the bunk rollers as I couldn't find new ones and I need them. It is a very heavy fibreglass boat with twin V8 shaft drive engines and there is no way it will slide off carpeted bunks.

I am guessing you made these.
