doktrred I had the same problem with my 99 Pathfinder. I ended up putting an extra set of bunks forward of the bunks that were on the trailer. They spanned the two front cross members, and were located closer to the keel of the boat. Seems to have solved the problem for me.

richg99 I've put plastic PVC Gutter Downspouts on my tinnys for years now.

Amazing, (given how thin the material is), that 2 or 3 years later and lots of launches, that they haven't worn through.

About $15.00 total cost including nails.

bigrebar I buy plain old half inch thick HDPE from any plastic provider. You can beat those prices by buying on line. It's easy to cut and drill.

I'm sure there may be scratches from the sand and salt up on the nose area where it first hits, it's a white hull though. Last time I buffed the hull it looked new again, so whatever is there doesn't bother me.

I know Sgrem had major issues, but I've had this boat on two different makes of trailers with bunks in different locations. There is no wear where the hull rides on the bunks. Original trailer was a Magnum and this newer trailer is a 2016 Coastline.

I lived on Padre Island for 7 years with this boat and a couple others. I launched this thing at the POA launch almost weekly, sometimes more when I could sneak away from work.

TXFishin No issues with sand, dirt, salt, causing scratches with teflon bunks?

Carpet could also be prone to this, but the standards of carpet would make it easier to conceal and particles and be less prone to scratching the hull as opposed to a slick surface

i like the big "wheel" idea .. very cool that you came up with it before it was mainstream. thanks for the info.

This particular boat has over 500 hours on it, so it has slid on and off the trailer hundreds of times. I never have an issue launching or loading at any ramp, even by myself. On a steep ramp, the front axle never hits the water.

And by the way, this is on a Bluewave 22 classic, same boat as the OP.

Good info, what type of material do you use for the bunks? Is it starboard or just HDPE? .... i know they are similar just ones a lot mote expensive. Also your coast line trailer has the bunks set alot lower and your bow stop is a lot lower than the mc clain I have so that probably plays a large factor. With my trailer setup the boat rides pretty high on the trailer.

I've had those for couple years now. I'm going to have to inspect the hull of my shallowsport because I'm getting some good wear on the edges and i need to look at the gelcoat. I'm seeing a lot of dust buildup.
