V-bunk material

Does anyone know what was used on the v- bunk for carpet backing? It looks like some sort of black plastic. Can I substitute plywood or s4s lumber? Mine is breaking apart and I'd like to replace it while the boat is in the water for the week.

Whatever thickness you have. There are several that'll work. Seaboard, King Starboard, etc..
All HDPE sheets.

BTW, you can replace these with the boat on the trailer. Just need to slide the boat back enough to get the bolts cleared. How you do that is up to you.

Just the cheap stuff from Overtons, we'll see how it holds up. I recessed and epoxied the bolts in and put a nice smooth radius on the edges with the router.

I did it a little different so the bow eye doesn’t break it if the trailer angle is wrong. It’s double layer of 1/2” nylon. I won’t be covering it with carpet. It didn’t seem to scratch, I didn’t have the keel guard on when I did it. It is carriage bolted. I just countersunk the 5/16 carriage bolt heads with a spade bit so they sit under the surface.
