o-k how do you repair a bottom rail on your trailer? ??? if your friends can't be trusted to do the repair, or drive the boat while you do, what's the solution? >:( any sniffers out there want to go fishing and do some trailer repair in one day? ;D i have those hard black plastic rail covers and one is popping up in the middle... hopefully only needs a new screw-washer! ;) anyone have this problem before?

exactly whare you calling a rail. is it the strong backs? put a hose clamp on it if its not structural and then maybe a pop rivet, steel pop rivet will last longer than aluminum

it's at the bottom "guides"... it's not structural.. the black hard plastic cover on the guide is popping up in the middle... i'll have to take a gander at it the next time i put it in the water... i'll let ya know... should be going out tomorrow ;)

Sounds like he may have those EZ Slide pads mounted on the bunk rails.
