You want carriage bolts, round top, through bolt, stainless for sure. No need for PT wood, just buy regular 2x6 boards. I bought my carpet from Home Depot. Also Lowe's carries it. Just get some grey or black outdoor carpet, available in 12' lengths, cut to whatever length you need, far cheaper than Overtons. Buy a decent staple gun, with stainless staples, glue not necessary. Google "recarpeting boat trailer bunks" and there is a site that will tell you the exact width you need for both 2x4's and 2x6's. You will find that it is pretty easy, just take your time. You should be able to do it all in 1 afternoon, no prob.
