  • Trailer modifications

    Anybody ever modified a bunk trailer with rollers to enable beach launch / landings for small boats? I have a basic 16' caulkins trailer with bunks & wanted to purchase rollers & come up with a way to attatch rollers by welds or angle iron to enable beach launches & landings. I was looking at these rollers & was curious if anyone has done this.

    Seems like a 16' boat would be pretty easy to launch if you added this type of a slide to your bunks. http://www.surfixinc.com/surfix_trailer_bunkslides.html

      Stay with the bunks

      I have been launching 16'-24' boats off the beach for almost 30 years and the biggest problem I have seen is with rollers. As Bighorn said, add some HDPE to the bunks and some side guides and be safe. Hop
