gifted to me. they look like ok idea. Have Nauset with 88 spl. Was considering double installation on each bunk. concerned about dimpling (since I do not have additional keel support, the bunks are 6 inches off keel). also look like the vessel would fly off these things.
Any comments on this products preformance would be appreciated.

I've used them with my 22' Revenge for a few years. I've seen no dimpling. I didn't double them up, just used several singles on each of 4 bunks. I think they help. When you mount them, use stainless screws.

oh, oh, why not??
I may buy them because what i have is not enough to "side by side" on the bunks which is what i would do provided i install them at all. Would prefer some more pros and cons on the product before i install but in the mean time how much you need for them?

In reality, with a Nauset set up correctly on the trailer with keel rollers taking the weight and bunks providing support... you don't need them. If you have just bunks, which you first entry says (...since I do not have additional keel support), they help.
