Looking for some of the Trex style (plastic) decking for the bunk boards, thought someone may have some left over from a previous deck project they may want to part with, for a reasonable price ..!

That chit is expensive at the lumber yard .. Sheesh

Approx 40 ft worth maybe a little more ..!

Thanks in advance ..

May have too much flex if laid flat over a large span.
Cedar is a better bet.

What length do you need? and does it have to be new? I have some from a deck replacement but it has screw holes in it.
Length doesn't matter, longer pieces the better for single runs, but hey can't be picky

Not worried about flex as it lays the entire length on steel channel .....

Prob 40-50 ft total of pieces, or there bouts

Used is fine, I will install, then use skill saw to cut drainage lines in along full length and where countersunk mount bolts are .!

You should see what this guy put on here before I owned it, can't believe he even wasted his time doing it ...!


Thanks let me know

Jay on their website shows dealers. Looks like tap plastic or closer to you these guys, this does look like a better product but more money. If you want the trex let me know.

TAP, Interstate and a few others. There are a few other options, recycled UHMW etc.

Maybe we could go in on a 4'x8' sheet and then cut it down for our needs? Would you be interested in splitting it? I am planning on 6" wide by 16' long probably 1" thick

I guess depends what the cost is, I need to get something down when I take to Westport instead of what is on there. trying to get things finished up enough to be ready on this project by the 1st of July and get the boat to the storage at Westport , probably dump the boat in the water and switch out the bunk boards on that Friday over at the storage or at the ramp..!

Anyone wanna help knock it out .. Haha..!!!

Just a question... Would you need to carpet the bunk if you were using trex? It seems it would be a similar surface to some of the products that snap over the bunks to reduce friction. All sharp edges would be rounded off of course.

I don't , I have used the Trex and similar for years with my aluminum river sleds and it has worked great , slick but not to slick

Again this is for a Aluminum pilothouse , so results with fiberglass or wood boat may be different and cause damage , not sure I have not used it in that application , you do need to have some type of support under it though !

Trying to finish some final things up to get her fishable ... First time I dumped her in the water after the outboard retrofit

Anyone running past Lynnwood that can handle 11' trex boards? I have the trex 5 boards just not going to be bring the boat down for a few more weeks so I do not have a way to bring the 11' length down with the dogs in the truck.

I just picked up a quantity of 4 6" wide 8' long 1/2" thick reprocessed UHMW for $160. They won't be supporting the weight, so I think 1/2" is plenty. I am going to countersink button head bolts to mount them to my bunk supports. Not too much more expensive than Trex, They might be too slick though.

This is basically what I've installed on my trailer. In probably 18 launchings/retrievals, I've noticed NO damage to my gel coat.

It is SLICK! I ended-up installing an 18-inch strip of carpet on the front end of each of the four bunks to "hold" the boat in-place when I power load. The first time I attempted, the boat just slid right back off the trailer when I backed-off the power. The strips of carpet are just-enough to hold her in-place, but still allow enough slip to easily power-load.

This is kinda the problem I have now with the Trex boards , power up sides right back down , usually launching by myself , wouldn't be so bad if I had someone to hook up the cable with maintaining a little power !!!
