    i put roller bunks on the trailer. i did this cause my bunks were rotten and brackets all rusted out, also i rhino lined the sides and bottom. the rollers wont fit between the kilgores (runners underneith) so i lined them up to ride on them. does anybody have these and is this ok?

    I would think the boat should still ride on the bunks and give the hull the support it needs. I don't know why the support would change just because the weight is resting on those ribs. Of course the weight of the boat is carried on a much smaller surface than it would be if the rollers were on the bottom instead of the ribs. I'd say to just keep a close eye on the boat for the first few trips and see if it becomes stressed in any manner.
