Paddle Wheel Verse Trailer Bunks

Recommended Posts

kylegansel

A tad annoyed here. I'm pretty sick of having to bend the fins back on my paddle wheel each time I take the boat in and out of the water. Apparently Eagle Trailers and Malibu didn't communicate about the location of the paddle wheel in 2005. Our launch kind of stinks so getting the dept just right is tough. The paddle wheel literally sits an inch off the side of one of the bunks. If the boat is slightly to the right the bunk wins. Any recommendations?

You should be able to move the bunks outward to miss the paddle wheel. Simple task when boat is off the trailer. Just confirm you have the space to move outward and not interfere with the hull chines.

My paddlewheel tore up the carpet every time the boat was loaded or unloaded. I took the bunk off and ripped a 45 degree corner off the bunk on the side that contacted the paddlewheel, stapled the carpet back down and have never had an issue with it again. Not saying it's gonna solve your problem but it has ours with the few times it's been on the trailer.

I'll have to look again but there is a support right on the inner edge so I just might have to take a sliver out of it.

Trailer always wins... upgrade to a GPS speedo and never look back.
