Bunk Spacing on Boat Lift

Recommended Posts

Lerni32

I am a new Malibu and boat owner and just launched by 2006 VLX yesterday on 14 foot carpeted V-Bunks. I am trying to determine how wide to space my V-Bunks on my boat lift. I have read that I should check the width of the bunks on my trailor. I have a Prestige trailer and it has three sets of bunks on the trailer. The widest and longest bunks at the back of the trailer are 51 inches off center. The middle set are 27 inches and the small and close together bunks in the front of the trailer are 29 inches off center.

I was told by the marina to have them around 36 inches off center of the boat, but they are resting right on the stringers. My question is what is the correct spacing? Which bunk measurement do I use? Is wider better? Can it be to wide? Is there an exact spot that's optimum?

Thanks.

Bunk boards should be right under the stringers, Sez Malibu.

Mine are sorta A shaped that doesn't come together at the top.

The wide part are the same width as my widest trailer bunks.

My lift is a front mount GalvaLift - the pontoon style.

So when I pull on to it the top of the A pinches the keel to keep me from pulling in too far so I can't hit the dock.

Also spreads to load and is very stable.
