Re: Re-carpeting Trailer Bunks

You can replace the bunks yourself. First, make sure you can remove the mounting hardware. You can do that in your driveway, with the boat on the trailer, as long as you do one at a time, and reinstall one before you remove the next. Buy true pressure treated lumber the same size as your bunk boards...

Re: How does the MLF changes affect California Bass fisherman?

The biggest barrier in getting BASS and BPT come to the west coast is distance, and the Rocky Mountains.
It is just too expensive for the competing anglers to make the trek, unless they are subsidized by their respective tours, and I don't see that happening.
