Bunkerboards

4 posts in this topic

I still am new to loading, got the unloading down pretty well. I try to power load whenever I can. Problem I have is that I always end up to the left, powerload or crank. I have the tall white guides with lights on, but the PVC gives and the boat just goes where it wants. Fleet has Bunkerboards on sale. I was thinking of getting them. Is this worth the invenstment? I was thinking the 5', not sure if 2' would do much. I have a 16.5' boat. Let me know your thoughts please.

I would check your trailer first if it has rollers to make sure one or two are not out of line. That could throw the boat one direction.

Make sure your trailer is level in the water,if one wheel is in a hole or off the ramp on one side,that would make your boat load crooked!

I think most of my problem is in-experiance. I'm getting better at it thought. I did buy the bunkerboards, 5', on sale at Fleet. Put them on and they don't come close to the boat. Any idea how you get them so they ride closer to the boat?

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
