Just check around, anyone who sells 3M products has a catalogue that has everything in it that 3M makes. Most of your local stores sell up to 4", but the 6" wide 60' rolls can be ordered and even larger in sheets, IIRC. Most of 3M's is the aggregate (mineral, like emory cloth) kind rather than the embossed plastic and the adhesive is far superior.

Nice work Shepherd. When are you going to re-do my boat and trailer!? BTW, that's a nice Honda motor you have on that fishing boat next to your trailer!

Everything is really gonna look sweet when you finish!

I promise you on one of your first trips to the lake, someone will ask you, "How do you like your NEW BOAT" or "Has that thing ever been in the water"! I want you share on here with your MC brothers and sisters how it made you feel, please!

Just curious what most of us do when replacing bunks. I replaced my bunks with 2 x 4 s last year and just wrapped with 2 layers of marine grade carpet. Anyone know of a problem doing it this way? Hindsight I wish I had thought of rounding edges a bit but I will prob have to redo this year or next anyway but just wondering if using "stock" 2 x 4 s is a concern for any reason.

BTW Shepherd that boat and trailer look GREAT!! Nice work.

Take a look at your hull where it rests on the bunks and see if you notice any deformation. I expect not, that fiberglass is some pretty strong stuff -- I wouldn't worry about it unless I saw some visible indication of deformation (note that I was only a little uneasy).

That said, if you replace them again, it is easy enough and cheap enough to get a local wood shop to trim them for you. Actually, you could probably do it easy enough with a table saw with the blade set at an angle, and a helper to hold the end of the board for you. In my case it was only a straight angle cut down the length of the boards ($10 total for both). I rounded the corners myself with a router when I got them home.

I replaced all the lights with LEDs, except the guide pole lights, which are some cheap $3 lights I got at the auto parts store.
