Loading a boat takes practice. And not just the backing up part—though that requires plenty of experience as well. Actually getting a boat up onto the trailer when it’s on the ramp takes some skill. Thankfully, boat trailers are designed to make it as easy as possible, thanks in large part to forgiving bunks and bunk guide-ons. Bunk guide-ons, in particular, provide all of the guidance you need to line up a boat just perfectly so that it sits on top of the bunks without rocking or rolling. They’re usually covered in marine carpet to provide a little friction but not enough to scratch or scuff a boat’s finish, while also allowing for a smooth approach should you bump one, while bunks are commonly covered in rubber to keep the boat firmly in place once it’s loaded. Guide-ons come in a variety of sizes, so it’s easy to find one that’s ideal for the length of your boat. Some guide-ons actually double as bunks, especially for pontoons, providing the support to hold your boat as well as giving you proper guidance to direct it onto the trailer.
