has anyone used, had any luck, or know anything about these plastic/silicone strips that go on bunks?

I use them with my Revenge 22. When the trailer is set up correctly, they work fine.

Instead of using the sliks, I sprayed some silicone directly on the bunks and let dry.
The next time I slid the boat off the trailer, it made a significant difference.

That's a Fact! I almost learned the hard way with my Star sailboat when I had McLube applied to the hull. Also, if you do use the silicone/McLube, make sure the boat is harnessed appropriately and TIGHTLY when trailering. She will move on the trailer!

I use parrifin wax. Just enough to stick and yet slick enough to slide. Not to mention safe for then environment
