Ah thanks Jeff, did you have them sent from over there in Holland, e.g. what sort of delivery costs?
Regards from Terry.

I like the idea of the rollers but ive just put kayak trolley wheels on my transom pad which made a huge difference especially for recovery. Saying that you could use these wheels puncture proof and plastic rims i think lomo water sports sell them seperate

Ah thanks Jeff. I've got transom wheels on my SIB so I'd envisage using the trailer to get to the water but the transom wheels for launching and recovery. Might go for bunks as long as I can get on / off the trailer ok without having to float on and off. The slip I'll use mostly isn't very long or deep - I want to get in and out of the water at times other than high water springs :-)
Regards, Terry.

terry

for info the wheels i have on the transom help a lot we've just done some shallow launches without any problems my bunks are about 20 inches high so as low as you can go with 10 inch wheels.
if you have transom wheels it will be a doddle if you set up the trailer so the bunks are lower at the stern so you can just lift and wheel or even better if you have a winch like i have i just wet my bunks and winch the boat on.

hope that helps jeff

Hi Jeff, that trailer looks ideal. What are those bunks made out of pls? They don't look like the ones that have carpet on them.

It's called buffalo board Terry quite expensive look at plastic decking as an alternative or as my last trailer I used tanalsed timber with carpet on or you could use ornamental grass which works as some have said.

Thanks for the tips Jeff. The buffalo board looks dear as you say, unless I could find a couple of bunk-sized pieces. Sheets of it are pricey aren't they.
Treated timber - can you just cover it with carpet or artificial grass or do you need padding underneath that?

Just the carpet Terry that's all the trailer manufacturing companies do I will say that the smooth board or any material allows the boat to slide easy but it does move whilst trailering to some extent sideways not a big one though just making you aware unless you set them up in a vee to captivate the boat.
