Stuff works really good...I push my skiff off with one hand. Just don't unhook boat from trailer until you get to the water.

This reminds me I'm about due for a new coat.

Spray Silicone will do the trick.

Also, I do know some guys who wax thier bunks. I think they use gulf wax, but I am not 100% sure.

I just use the spray silicon also. It's a couple of bucks at the big box stores.

Like mentioned above, DO NOT unhook the boat until it is over water. I take a turn around the winch post with my bow line to slow the thing down coming off the trailer. If I don't it's like launching the Titanic.

Try Liquid Rollers. its very good but costs a bit more .most boating store have it. Mine comes off the trailer like crazy for about 2 months...then its time to re apply. Silicone can build up over time and actually can get sticky, so ive heard, but ive used it and it does work, but not like Liquid Rollers Spray.

Trailer Parts Superstore - Liquid Rollers Bunk Spray Coating, 10 oz.

Yeah liquid rollers is the stuff.

You can also use pure silicone for tires as well...the gel stuff.

I have used regular Spray Silicone from Ace Hardware. They have some stuff with Teflone in it that works the best.

Back down, shake the bow to break the static friction and it will slide right off the trailer.

I've just got the white bunk slicks on my trailer and my skiff slides right off with no problem at all.
