Replaced my fenders and rebuilt my fender bunks

Shout out to Sturdy Built for their great prices, quality fenders, free shipping and near instant gratification. Ordered on Saturday, received in mint condition on Thursday


This is a 2015 Coastline trailer and they use junk screws to attach the fender bunks to the fenders. I wadded up both fenders by having the trailer too deep in the water (it's a long trailer though), the bunks didn't support the aluminum b/c of rusted screws, so I crunched them. I fixed that today though!

New fenders for $160, new carpet for $40, stainless staples and screws were $10 and lumber was $10. Took me 3 hours per side to get them done right, but I'm happy. The grip tape where you should step is just something I had left over from another project.
I'd redone the starboard side bunk with a new board, stainless screws and Atwood carpet a few months back, had been meaning to do the port side, but my hand was forced recently. I will say that the carpet I got from the boat dealer was 2x thick as the Atwood stuff they sell at Academy, Tackletown, etc. For $15 more, skip the Atwood stuff and go to a boat dealer and buy what they use on bunks, it's much better. It's STILL not as good as what you'd get from the trailer mfr, but you also get galvanized self tapping screws to hold the fender bunks on, so pick your poison.

All done, just need to snug up bolts on SB side, need to go get one new stainless nut and I'll be good!

I think I spent the majority of my time in measuring, comparing, adjusting, measuring, etc. Wanted them level with the wheels, same distance from the boat as MFR built, etc. This is the one project where almost everything was done level and true, I only missed the port side grip tape being perfect by a degree, but at least I'm consistent.
