Replacing trailer bunks
« on: March 19, 2017, 06:31:13 PM »
Gonna be replacing my trailer bunks. Not sure if I can just use regular 2x4s and weather seal them or if I should spend the extra money and get treated wood. Any advise is appreciated.

All the ones I have done have been treated wood and carpet from pacific trailer in specific sizes to match bunks makes it 100x easier.

I've been told there's a chemical in the treated wood that's no good for your boat... Myth or?

Never heard that before and I have had mine done for about 8 years or so. Have done a few boats with them.

Treated lumber is treated with Copper Sulphate. (CuSO4)

The sulfuric acid (battery acid) can eat away at organic compounds in you bunk carpet. And a small amount of copper goes into  the river/lake.

And the lumber still rots, just not as fast.

just my $0.02

What kind of epoxy are you talking about? The Appliance spray paint from rustolium or the concrete epoxy?
