UBB dot com is the only way to go. No more "re-carpeting" install UBBs and you're done... I have had them on my trailer for two seasons now and no damage to gel coat. I'm a believer. Lol

CAUTION if you do install UBBs, DO NOT DISCONNECT BOW HOOK UNTILL IN WATER or you will launch on ramp! Lol you will surely be it he boat ramp thread.

But, sure it is. Using a smaller staple would surely pull through the carpet easier then a larger fatter shank and crown staple would.

This is a project I may tackle this summer with the trailer empty.

Where is the recommended source for bunk carpet? Like to do mine in black.

I got my carpet from Lowes. It's black and seems to be good quality

Yup, definitely the way to go....but heed this warning!! I had a jet ski slide off onto my garage floor when I forgot to insert the bow pin

I got decent carpet for $25 at lowes I couldn't find black though had to use grey. I would HIGHLY recommend using a pneumatic stapler and impact wrench. I took off first bunk without one..took an hour (chisel around carriage bolts) 2nd one took 10 minutes with impact wrench

I had the benefit of a good compressor in the garage of my lake house (boat at dock). Anyone in Lake lanier area needs to do this PM me and I would be glad to provide facilities and guidance. Hell I'll even lend you my tools.

I will post final pics

Also if using old bunks as template I would only drill one of the 2 holes at each mount. I couldn't seem to get both perfect but I always got one of them lined up right.

I just used carriage bolts but may have used the torque washers if I had to do it over again
