    Make sure those bunk brackets cannot rotate where they meet the frame and allow the bunks to spread when the hull is on them.

    How do you get your ski on the stand off the trailer? Does your trailer sit that low?

    When I built my mine... I made sure all the bunks were the same height as my trailer so I could slide the ski back and forth.

    Cheers!

    I just tilt my double trailer back and slide it onto the stand. The wheels lock on the stand so it does not move. Then crank it onto the trailer by hand and tilt the trailer again to get it back on.

    I already have a stationary stand that's about the same height. Same scenario for that one too. I know what ya mean though
    , its easier if they are level. I like them low because its easier to wrench on the ski instead of bending way over each time .

    My stands are lower than my double trailer. I just get the rear of the ski where it needs to be on the stand, and then grab the nose of the ski and let it come down gently on the bunks.

    If you spray some WD-40 on the carpet bunks, and on the bottom of the hull , it will right off once you get ut moving. Makes 10 times easier that dragging it over a dry carpet and dry hull.side to side movement really helps a lot. Going to go try out the nee stand right now! 83 and sunnny. Time to fire up the Pro785 and get the sumner adrenalene going! Hahahaa..love those triple pipes.lll

    MariKate makes a product called Liquid Rollers, which is a bunk spray lubricant. It is essentially a Silicone spray lubricant that coats the carpet fibers and then dries to a slippery effect.

    In a pinch I have used regular Silicone spray lube on my bunks.

    The Liquid Rollers really makes it easy to slide the hull on the bunks!

    WD-40 seems to be mostly kerosene and some other fish oily stuff. I would hesitate to use it on my hull or bunks.

    In fact, I mostly use WD-40 for removing sticky labels and gummy residue. For almost everything else there are better products. I go through my WD-40 very slowly. Each can lasts years.
