    My son has a bunk that needs to be replaced.(end is rotted) I'm assuming it can be done while sitting on the trailer somehow. I'm guessing that it has to be jacked up and blocked in a couple places.It's a 19' boat.

    I think you'll find it's a much easier job if you launch the boat then replace the bunk.

    Doing it with the boat on the trailer is going to be a PITA.

    I did all 4 bunks on my trailer for my old 2003 Larson 190. I bought the 2 x 6's (green treated of course) and recovered them with bunk carpet at home, then I launched the boat and swapped the bunks. The swap took maybe an hour total.

    We got the bunk replaced with the boat on the trailer. I found a method to do it over at the hulltruth.com. It really wasn't that bad. I'm sure it would have been easier with the boat off though.
