Trailer bunk help for GPR.
Guys I am just so frustrated with my trailer bunks on my trailer and my shop stand and the bottom of my GPR. Since the bunks don''t line up right on the bottom of my ski it has marked up the bottom of my Nice new fresh paint.... Yes I know it is gonna happen, but I would like suggestions to maybe help make it not as bad. the edge of the traile has actually rubbed the paint off of the bottom of my ski.
Any ideas would be awesome.

Austin, I can not find the thread, but someone here had hand carved the 2X4 wooden bunks to fit the GPR hull bottom perfectly. There was compound miters all along the long edge as to thin the board so it sits totally flat against the hull...
mine are real close as far as adjustment goes, but i find liquid rollers to help reduce the marks left from the sand and crap in the carpet... good luck and take care of that new paint!

there is a thread in the trailer section with various pics. Most important thing is that the front of the bunks are set higher and wider than the rear.

Thanks guys, I don't think what I have now is bad (WELL IT IS with what I paid) But I don't need to make things worse if I can take care to make it right.

I'm using these on my GPR trailer. They are actually 2x3.5" so they fit perfectly flat between the chines. They have a grippy textured side & a smooth side. I put mine on the smooth side & they don't scuff the hull like carpet. I'm able to pull the ski onto a shop stand much easier too. There's also a product called liquid rollers for carpeted bunks that is sold in most marine stores that may help the scuffing.

Check out the rollers in the trailer section. Joe turned me on to them. I won't go back to bunks.
