Default Boat Lift Bunk Carpet Replacement

What is the best thing to use (e.g., stick with carpet)? Where do you get it and any instructions/advice on installation and tools would be greatly appreciated.

I just use the outdoor carpet you find at Lowes or Home Depot. Spend $6 on carpet there (they will pre cut it for you) and then some Stainless Steel staples. Easy peezy, takes like 10 minutes. Have done this to my trailers and lift bunks.

Also consider smoothing the edges of your bunks to prevent them from cutting the carpet in the long run.

Nothing super special here, but cheap as hell and gets the job done!

I know it's not what you asked but I would go with GatorBak.

BTW do not use SS staples, on PT wood you need Monel.
