An online forum for spearfishermen around the world.
I have a buddy that works at a boat yard / boat shipping place. He told me to drive it up, they would take it off with the lift and we could do it right there. Looking to do it once offshore action stops.

Jeremy how much did that pvc run you? Is it uv stabilized? The only reason I ask is because unless pvc is coated with something (paint, protectant etc) it gets brittle very fast.
I'm researching using different types of plastics for bunks as mine are going to go bad soon. I was thinking of using sintra which is a pvc based plastic, it's a bit soft though and the sun will tear it up. There's a guy on ebay that sells plastic glide bunk tops that are made up of something that is similar to starboard, Im going to guess it's some sort of polyethylene like plastic. Everyone says it's much easier to get your boats on and off with plastic bunks but I was wondering if having less of a cushion will damage the boat on long trailering hauls (my normal route to the launch ramps I use is about 45 miles each way). I assume that carpet adds some shock absorbing to the boat. The downside of course is you have to replace it, it gets waterlogged etc.
