When you guys replace the carpet on your bunks do you take the sharp edge off the boards before installing the carpet??

It ceretainly seems like it would. I mean everytime you have the ski hit that corner the carpet has to be screaming murder.

Mine are rounded off, plus I put those plastic bunk rails on top, ski glides off really easily!

Are you guys using the treated wood?
I hear the stuff splits and can cause a nasty infection.
Also you have to watch the brackets that you mount to the wood as it may harm the brackets??

I am using regular lumber that I cut down, and then I seal them with Thompsons watersealer. I then use marine grade carpet I use S/S staples while I streach the carpet. Three years later with no problems.

Ohh yea, I did install a steel sleave in the wood where the bolt for the braket goes into it. For added strenth.
