You guys know anyone on the okie side of Texoma (Kingston/Catfish Bay area) that will replace bunk boards at the ramp parking lot?

My buddys boat needs it bad. So thought I would check on it.

I know there is a guy down around Dallas. Just wondered if had anyone on Texoma.

Go to lumber yard, get treated boards and do it. Stainless stove bolts, and scrap out door carpet.

I measure the womanized wood out ahead of time, glue and staple the carpet to the board and bring them w me to the ramp. Launch the boat. Remove the old ones. Bring a cordless drill to drill pilot holes and put the new bolts in. GO FISHIN!!!  It takes more time to attach the carpet than to attach the runners to the trailer.

I stood around while my cousin who has lots of cool looking but expensive and dangerous electric tools did it.  I cheered him on and look appropriately concerned and hauled off the rotted bunkers.  I asked him if anyone had tried the synthetic wood that they are making decks out of, he did not know, but seems like it would work and not rot

I was willing to help him do the complete trailer but he want to fish more that work. We are going to replace the one broken board and then he is going to finish the project when we get back home. His boat would actually be real easy it has a lot of boards but they are all straight. 

I do like Scotty's plan though. That would make it pretty quick at the ramp. I think I will recommend that too him.

I was just hoping there might be someone local that did this. It would be a decent gig for some old retired man. Maybe an old engineer? LOL!! [rofl]No wait, it might be a little too dangerous.

I know I cannot do a thing without busting my hands up, and I can't hardly stand to wear the mechanics gloves. However I am using them more and more often.
