So far, everything I've read said NOT to use any glues/adhesives on the back of the carpet.

I just did mine this year. Boat new untreated 2x6's and a $30 electric stapler with stainless staples. I used a router to round over all the edges and stapled the heck out of the new carpet. No glue needed. Took boat and new boards to launch and replaced them all in less than 30mins. I bought new stainless lag bolts but coulda prob just used the old ones. Now I have spare bunk boards to do it all again in a few years.

You used untreated wood? I always thought that if the wood was going to cycle dry wet dry like with trailers you should always use treated wood.

Yes I used untreated. I don't expect the boards to last forever. Many threads on various forums on whether treated or untreated with plus an minus of each. The sock boards I took off appear to be treated but I'm not sure as I haven't peeled the old carpet off yet.

For flighhighordie getting the boat off the trailer in the garage was quite the task. the biggest thing was making sure we had enough clearance to walk around the boat and to get the door to close. But once the back of the boat was sitting on the 6x6's then the rest was pretty easy. then it was just jack up the front and move the trailer 6 inches at a time. However for he skid question I too stapled mine however the staple were only to make sure the ends weren't flopping around. I also cut 45 degree angles on the back ends to make sure it didn't or couldn't make any marks on the bottom of the boat during the loading process.

I used a manual staple gun and stainless staples - lots of them. How many double up on carpet?

I'll probably leave the old stuff on or put to layers of new.

I also order those monel staples.

Don't simply carpet over the old. Surface irregularities will wear the new carpet much faster.

Two layers of new is ok or get heavier nonbacked carpet from a carpet store. We had extra 32oz from the 12' wide roll used for the pontoon floor that worked great on the bunks.
