Moveable Bunk System

Post by old&slow » 05 May 2019, 21:28

I recently purchased a 1955 Rich Line and it came on a Gator trailer that appears to be of the same vintage. It has a wonderful lever operated rear bunk system. The bunks can be lowered to launch/retrieve the boat and then raised to make the boat stable on the trailer.

Unfortunately, the bunks that are currently on it do not take advantage of the raising/lowering capability. As you can see in the photos, when the bunks are in the lowered position, they end up raised in the rear, defeating the purpose. Before I start sawing the bottoms off the bunks, has anyone seen this system and/or have a picture of what it should look like? Thanks!!

No need to saw, just need new holes positioned lower.

Thank you - I thought of that, but I don't want to raise the boat any higher than it already sits.

So, this is how I fixed it. I think it will be fine.
