This product is a solid 8 inch Stainless Steel L-Shaped Bunk Bracket. This Bunk Bracket measures 8 inches tall and 5 inches wide, and uses 3/8 inch thick Stainless Steel. The Holes you see on the longer section and foot section are 1/2 inch in diameter, and the foot holes are designed specially to be mounted on a 3 inch wide cross member. (Holes are 3 1/2 inches on center, use a 1/2 inch diameter x 3 inch inside width U Bolt). In most, if not all cases, the cross-member would measure 3 inch by 3 inch. This style bunk bracket is used to mount bunk boards vertically to support the hull of the boat.
If you are deciding on this 8 inch L-Shape Stainless Steel Bunk Bracket you are either replacing existing rusted bunk brackets or switching the style of bunks on your boat trailer.
When replacing existing rusted L Shape bunk brackets of the same style and switching to this Stainless Steel bunk bracket, be sure to use use Stainless Steel U-Bolts to mount them to your Aluminum cross-members for maximum saltwater corrosion protection.
If you are mounting this 8 inch L Shape Bunk bracket to a 3 inch by 3 inch cross-member, the correct stainless steel U-Bolt is Stainless Steel U-Bolt 1/2 inch x 3 inch x 4 5/16 inch. This size U-Bolt will ensure the proper length of threads. Be sure to double check the U-Bolt dimension you require. These U-Bolts are also available in Hot-Dipped Galvanized if your trailer has Galvanized cross members rather than aluminum ones. In addition, you will need through bolts to re-mount your bunk boards. Check the length bolt you need.
