Default Bunk Carpet?

Anyone have a good website supplier for trailer parts? I'm looking for bunk carpet, fender step pads, winch straps, etc. I have a local carpet house that will sell marine grade carpet but it was not cheap and they wouldn't cut it to the bunk width. The salesperson was just not very co-operative. And don't get me started on the trailer builder.

Thank you for any help.

My dealer sells it in 8" or 12" width rolls 10' or 12' long, black in color, I'm not sure who the supplier is but I have to go right by there today so I can stop in and check it out, check this site out, looks like they have a lot of trailer stuff.

Those guys are fantastic. I've used them 3 or 4 times so far and they have been top notch. They are down in Delaware so its only a few hours from here and they ship quick. IIRC I ordered a pair of mounted tires for my old jet ski trailer on a Monday morning and they arrived on Wednesday. I've gotta get a new set for the little sled trailer and I'm going with them again.

While we're on the bunk topic, what are you guys using for the wood nowadays? I know pressure treated reacts badly with galvanized metal so that is out. Some kind of cedar or oak maybe?

Dennis Kirk also has it if you look in their watercraft section. They also have bunk pads that are made of some sort of plastic and its supposed to make it a lot easier to slide the boat on and off but the best part is it will not trap water and dirt like the carpet does. I've heard that carpet straight onto the gel can cause blistering.

If your trailer is like mine it has 16+ bunks so carpet is hard to find. I got mine from C-Hawk,think it was around $35.

I used Starboard on my sealed Doug fir bunks. I have to be carefull backing down the ramp not to tap the brakes too early. Boat slides
off slicker than SH--. The wood is not sealed in this picture.



So far I have not seen any damage or scratches in the gel coat. Guides the boat onto the trailer very well with no help from anyone.

Just curious as to what you used to seal the wood?

I've also used easternmarine and they usually have what you're looking for at decent prices.

Why not use some indoor/outdoor. I bought some in black from Home Depot. Worked out great in my book. It was Olefon I think and is still in great shape.

Eastern Marine is a great supply house for trailer items As John L. said. I have been to there store, is where I got my new axle and hubs, decent prices too.
