  • Double Bunks on a 2009 Ramlin for a 230/236?

    I have a Nautique 230 with a Ramlin trailer. I recently replaced the bunks. The each bunk were was two 6x2 boards stacked on top of each other. So the bunks are 4" thick.

    I was wondering if this is standard? I have never seen another trailer with the bunks made from two boards.

    Only reason I can think of for doing this is spacing, how much clearance do you have on the prop guard when boat is on trailer? I will say I replaced the bunks on my 2009 210 ramlin trailer and there was only one layer of boards.

      I'll check the prop clearance.

      Hoping someone else on the form has owned a Ramlin trailer from a 230 and can confirm.

      My concern is the bunks what form to the shape of the boat as well as a single bunk would or that the trailer may not be made for a 230.

        Okay, I double checked and it isn't a clearance issue. Plenty of space between the prop an the guard.

        I am already having issues with the carpet on the new bunks getting worn (looks like burn marks), at one point it right through the carpet. not sure home much difference the double bunks would make. Anyone got thoughts on this?

          What brand / type of bunk carpet did you use? My observation is that there are at least two types...type one is a more like a poly 'fur' and the other is more carpet like. The poly fur type seems prone to burning under heavy load and/or when dry.

          I just replaced my bunks and what I removed was the carpet style and what I used was the fur style. Haven't loaded the boat yet (on a lift for the summer) however I have seen this fur type burn on my nose guide in the past so I have some concerns.

          I was not able to locate a good source for the carpet type....

            I used the same CD Smith bunk capet from Amazon you linked above.

            When reading up on trailer bunks before I did them, a lot of posts recommended using regular outdoor carpet from HD or Lowes. I think that may be the carpet style.

              Yeah...ok. Be interesting to see what happens as I load / unload. One thing I'm trying is a lot more of is floating on/off the trailer. Specifically trying to avoid any power loading. I think that will help reduce the friction and melt down of the bunk carpet. My bow V-berth won't benefit from this as the bow rocks as the stern floats off the trailer - this is leading to the problems with my v-berth. I do think the float off/on will mostly mitigate the bunk issue.

              How are you loading?

                I sometimes power load. The ramp I use in my Marina's ramp. It is pretty steep which limits how deep i can put the boat into the water. If I go too deep then the bow will not make it over the bow roller.

                Part of the reason I replaced the carpet on the bunks was to make loading easier and not need to power load. I have also replace the winch with a 2 speed as the previous winch was not able to pull the boat up without some power to help. I have only used the trailer a few times since replacing the bunks and I don't remember if I power loaded the boat, possible the first time as I was loading it alone. The last few times I didn't power load.


                My one concern is the double bunks are not providing enough flex it the wood to conform to the shape to the hull.

                  Power loading likely a big contributor to the problem. I've really tried to get away from it as much as possible. It was easy peasy with my prior Mastercraft but it hasn't been as good with the Nautique/DHM trailer setup.

                  Here's a couple of suggestions I have read that may help.

                  - Dunk the bunks prior to loading, make sure they are soaked with water.
                  - Try some of this bunk spray - supposed to reduce friction

                  Love to hear how it works out...I'm sure I'm going to be doing some of the same.

                    I have owned several different Ramlin trailers including 2, 230 trailers... One for a 2008, and one for a 2009. I have never seen 2x6's stacked like that, and that would make me a bit nervous actually - as they degrade (that the fasteners may allow the top board to slide if they fail, unless bolted all the way through....

                      Thanks, that's the awnser I've been waiting for. I have not seen any other trailer with double Bunks.

                      The bunks we're lag bolted before but I through bolted the new ones, so I'm not worried about that. I will redo the bunks next year and just use one 2x6. Not sure if it will help with the carpet issues but worth a try.

                        I think the liquid rollers will solve the carpet burn problem. Just make sure you keep your bow strap fastened until the boat is IN THE WATER, that stuff is SLIPPERY!!!

                          I do use liquid rollers. Always leave the strap on till the boat is wet.

                              One thing is you may have to adjust the bow stop with any bunk adjustment.... Oh, and be sure to counter sink those bolts ... (You probably already did)
