    Would you buy these Bunk Glides for your PWC trailer?

    We are in the process of setting up to cut and build bunk glides for boat and PWC trailers here at our shop. For the PWC trailers, I will be using 3" x 16" x .5" HDPE plastic. They will have countersunk holes and come with (4) stainless steel mounting screws. They can be mounted directly over top of your wooden bunks.


    Out of curiosity, would you guys be interested in these at $5.50 each? Typical PWC trailer would take 6 pieces and doubles would take 12


    These make loading and unloading 60%-80% easier than carpeted bunks.

    i had these at one time and my skis would just slide back off the bunks unless somebody was up front to hook the winch up.also highly recommend another strap to secure the skis,if that winch lock came loose and theres no rear strap the ski with slide right off,whether its down the hiway or the angled ramp.

    I would never consider trailering down any road without strapping the rear down to the trailer.

    And I normally do attach a backup strap from the bow eye down to the trailer frame.

    i meant adding another cable up front to limit the rearward movement.i fashioned a cable with a self closing loop hook.simply pulling up the inclined ramp with only the front winch attached would net you a jetski hull damaged heavily if the winch lock didn't hold with those glides on.i'll say no more

    Is the plastic in the bunk glides softer or harder than typical jet ski hulls? I'm wondering about scratching/scraping or leaving marks.

    Cheers!

    I meant the same thing.

    Why you never, never, never put the winch strap over the bow roller...

    I had that problem with some Bunk Enders. Didn't like the hull scuffing so I went back to just bunk carpet, and I now use Liquid Rollers spray lubricant on the bunks from time to time.

    It appears to be a silicone lubricant. It's MSDS is identical to CRCs Electrical Silicone Lubricant
