Default Boat trailer help

Apparently the brackets that hold my bunks to the trailer are going bad, because after I launch my boat I have a board coming loose. I?ve looked at a few places and can?t find any anywhere. Does anyone have a idea where to get these. I have a 17? X 54? Prodrive boat. Any help is appreciated.

academy had some when I did mine but I decided to build my own and weld them to thev trailer. academy had a lot of options. tops trucks in Sulphur has a lot of trailer stuff and so does big red trailers. not sure if u have either in ur area though. make sure and use stainless bolts and spend the extra money when u think u should so u don't have to do it again

Awesome thanks for the help guys. I looked on the trailer manufacturer?s website this morning and found the parts they are about $10 per one. Im going to have to check out etrailer.com to see if the prices are better.

I second to comment about using Galvanized bolts.


Most Stainless steel sold in stores is a 304 grade. These will rust after a while. You have to buy a 316 grade [or higher] to keep them from rusting.


Galvanized bolts of supports will not rust for many years ..... unless the coating gets damaged.
