Boat Trailering Guys:,
I am going to install new carpeted bunks in my boat's trailer. Should I use a product like Liquid Rollers to protect the carpet and facilitate launching and retrival of the boat?

Most of the time, the boat can be launched on a bunk trailer without a problem if the bunks are wet. That said, a lot of folks do use products that will add some "slide" to the bunks. But there's a problem about which you need to be aware: There have been instances when the boat has been pi\ulled along the highway when a quick stop is necessary. The boat slides along the bunks because tiedowns weren't secured properly. If you use a product to add some "slide," just make sure it slides when (and where) you want it to slide.
