Proper Trailer Bunk Board Length for 21 Foot Boat


Have a Ez-Loader 19/22 trailer with two bunks that are 12 feet long. Would it hold boat 21 feet long ?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Two 12 foot long bunks boards will work well to support your 21 foot boat.

Ideally, the bunk boards should be at least half as long as your boat and run from the stern (or a few inches beyond it) to the bow as far forward as you like.

Due to shipping restrictions/cost on over-sized items, the longest bunk boards we carry are the CE Smith Carpeted Bunk Boards # CE27845 which are 7 foot long.

If you were looking to replace your bunk boards, one solution that is very budget friendly is to make your own. You can pick the wood of your choice at your local hardware store and have them cut it to the 12 foot length you need. You can then use our CE Smith Marine Carpet like part # CE11349, which is 18 ft long and 18 inches wide to give you the extra slack to wrap around the front and back of the boards. You would need one roll for each board.
