Thanks for the suggestion. It seems to me that a wider set of bunks which conform to the normal hull shape would be better than flat boards. Has anyone had any experience in making some like that?
Yes. The bunks will conform after the weight of the boat is on them for a few weeks. Especially after they get wet and dry with the boat on them.
