Trailers for SIB's

Hi can anyone tell me where to buy the soft pads for inflatable boat trailers.
My boat currently has rollers for the keel, I think that the soft pads would be better.

Bunks? Lumber covered with outdoor carpeting.

I have two bunks on either side and rollers for my keel. I never saw it as a problem.

Otherwise they are made as JKY says. Take pressure treated lumber and cover it with marine carpeting. They sell it in rolls designed to make bunks if you want. Make sure to use stainless staples, and at least galvanized bolts if not stainless lag bolts to secure the lumber to the trailer.

I'm assuming by "soft pads" you mean carpeted bunks. As stated above, use lumber with outdoor carpet.
