C.E. Smith Roller Bunks
A little surprised
I just got these delivered today. I haven't even mounted them yet. They seem to be of good quality and are made of substantial materials. I was surprised to find NO directions in the box. And I agree with a previous review that "for this price they should include some nuts and bolts." I guess I will experiment with placement and number of fasteners until it looks right. It seems to me that a set of simple instructions would be far less expensive than a potential product liability suit due to improper installation. I can see it now - driving down the road on the way to the lake, the bunks begin to move around, the boat starts to slide sideways . . .

Ship Shape Rollers
I recently purchased the 5 ft roller bunks for use with my Jet ski. These are not necessarily designed to use with skis, but I know that there are trailers available w/rollers for large skis like mine. The idea was to protect my clear coat and make for an easier launch in shallow conditions. My carpet bunks were damaging my clear coat. I had the pleasure of using them this weekend, and was extremely pleased! Rolled right off and on easily. No need to wax or lubricate like carpet bunks. No mess, no fuss and won't rust. Great product!! Excellent customer service as well.

I really like the product and they seem to be of very good quality. I wish the catalog would have specified that if you install on your existing bunks you do no need the brackets instead it said 2 brackets required for each roller. I spent about $25 in handling fees and return postage because I didn't need the brackets

The roller banks are strong, and they stand up well for many years. I have a set on my old fishing boat trailer that I bought over 10 years ago, and they are working perfectly. That's why I bought them again, for a different situation.
