Make the new bunks ahead of time, lift the boat on one side, enough to remove the old and install the new and repeat on the other side. If you make them ahead of the installation, it should really take about 15 minutes if you measure for the bolts correctly. You're going to through-bolt them with nylock nuts and washers, right? I'm not a big fan of lags going toward a hull.

I would think about drilling the bolt holes, counter-boring a bit deeper and filling the holes with epoxy and spread it past the holes. Maybe talk to a lumber yard about moisture resistant lumber since pressure treating is for fungi, insects and marine borers more than water.
