Bolster-and-swivel-bracket assemblies are typically mounted upright on a boat trailer's crossmembers. They allow a mounted bunk board, which runs from the front of the trailer to the back, to tilt to accommodate and support boat hulls of different sizes. On kayak trailers, these brackets are mounted to the trailer's frame and support bunk boards that run across the trailer.


Galvanized Steel

Steel parts are galvanized by being hot-dipped in zinc after they have been stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

So far so good. The brackets are working fine so far. Haven't put the trailer on the road yet, but the boat requires bunkers to have a curve or bow in them. The middle brackets stand the torsion as well as the weight of the boat. Easy to install as well.

Worked great to convert a poor quality trailer into a trailer that would actually carry and launch a sailboat. Lots of room for adjustments. Overall excellent quality.

First off, I want to say that the products that I ordered from etrailer.com were of high quality and were easy to install, and lets not forget about the fast shipping and my favorite - the personal touch added to the email communications where each one is signed by a human (rather than something generic). My project itself entailed replacing the two (original) vertical mount 4' bunks on my boat trailer (see the attached pictures). These were set-up to hold a 15' sailboat. I recently purchased a 12' (plastic) jon boat, and I felt that the jon boat needed better support on the trailer so that it didn't warp or dent. After doing a lot of research, I decided to go with two horizontal mount 6' bunks. They were pre-finished at a cost less than if I were to purchase the individual components (wood, glue, carpet, staples, etc.) and do the assembly work myself. Attaching the hardware and mounting them to the trailer was a snap - see the attached pictures for the finished setup.

Great product, replaced the old rusted brackets, rails and plastic fenders with new galvanized brackets and fenders and beat up rails.

by:

The swivel brackets were exactly as described, and etrailer upgraded my shipping for free. I had them in 4 business days instead of the 5-7 I paid for. One suggestion for etrailer for these particular items: You should include 2 sets of bolt, nut and washer for each of the bracket kits, as well as a washer for the nut and bolt that was included for the swivel piece. It is a bit annoying to have to run to the hardware store for a bag of hardware to mount this on my trailer. I also screwed the brackets on to the bunk boards with lag bolts, but those are a personal preference.

Great mounts ... heavy duty ... Worth the money ??



- CE10000G-4
by:

The Bolster Brackets are exactly what I ordered. However, they are galvanized products and come w/zinc plated hardware. This creates a situation where the hardware will rust (& freeze) far before the brackets do as any boater would understand. This renders adjustments to your trailer and/or the replacement of parts a difficult task. Solution: offer the brackets w/galvanized hardware or at least offer the option in something other than "small print."

this has happened again. I can't rate a product that should last years the minute it gets in my hand. The pieces LOOK good. The shipping was timely and the price was fair none of which tells me or you how good the product IS. Get back after two years of dunking in fresh and salt water and I'll give an honest review.


Comments
so far so good. After a year of dunking in fresh and salt water there is no sign of rust and no cracks in the material. Im pleased and a little surprised they held up so far given the poor quality of a lot of galvanized pieces nowadays. If they hold up this good after two years they have my wholehearted endorsement, for what thats worth.

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • Does CE Smith Bolster Assembly for Boat Trailers, part # CE10000G-4 have Weight Capacity
    I spoke with my contact at CE Smith, and they said the Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assembly for Boat Trailers, part # CE10000G-4, do not bear the weight of the boat. The U-bolt that attaches the brackets to the trailer frame support the weight of the boat more than anything so these do not have a stated weight capacity. Your 4,000 lb boat would not be an issue for these brackets at all.

  • How Much Weight Can the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies Hold
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies part # CE10000G-4 do not have a specified weight capacity as it can vary by the strength of the u-bolts used in conjunctions with these brackets as well as how many brackets are used per board. I know this is frustrating to not have a specific weight capacity but unfortunately the manufacturer just does not provide this. I know we have called and asked several times in the past. However, with that being said the brackets are more or...

  • Bunk Bracket Recommendation for Converting Roller Bunk Trailer to Wood Bunk
    You'd really need to base it off the hull design of the boat you plan to tow. I'd use swivel bunk brackets like the part # CE10000G-4 to mount the boards as these allow you to angle the boards to match the shape of your boat's hull. I attached a picture that shows how they typically install on a similar trailer.

  • Looking for 6 Galvanized U-Bolts that are 3 Inches Square with 7/16 or 1/2 Inch Diameter
    We have a few different options for you to choose from. The CE Smith U-Bolt, # CE15252A, is zinc-plated and it is 3 inches long x 3-1/8 inches wide x 7/16 inch diameter. This u-bolt was designed to fit around 3 inch trailer frames. We also offer this u-bolt in a set of 2 as part # 7163183UB and with a stainless steel finish which is part # CE15502A. I have attached links to each of these parts below. We do not carry any square u-bolts that are 3 inches wide because they would be more...

  • Recommended U-Bolt to Fasten Bolster Bracket to 3 x 2 Inch Boat Trailer Frame
    Since you've got a boat trailer, you'll want to use something that offers a good level of corrosion resistance. We have two different u-bolts that would work for you, one that's zinc plated # CE15252A and one that's stainless steel, part # CE15253A. If you're in a freshwater environment, the zinc plated u-bolt would work fine, but if you're using your boat in saltwater, you might consider the stainless option.

  • Is Mounting Hardware Included with CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies, # CE10000G-4
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies, # CE10000G-4, do not come with any mounting hardware. Because the brackets can be used for different size and type bunks they do not include the hardware because it would not cover all applications. The holes that attach the bunk board to the swivel bracket are 3/8 inches in diameter. To attach the brackets to the trailer frame you can use U-bolts such as # CE15283GA-2 which are 3-13/16 inches long, 3-1/16 inches wide, and have a 1/2...

  • U-Bolts to Mount Bolster Brackets to a 2-1/4 Inch Trailer Frame
    Your best option is going to be u-bolt set # 7162184UB. Since these are 2-1/8 inches wide you will likely need to bend them some to fit a 2-1/4 inch frame.

This will allow you to mount them to your 3x3 inch square tube trailer.

    Typically yo'll use brackets like part # CE10000G-4 with U-Bolts like part # CE15283GA-4 and then a combination of bunk boards like the 3' long # CE27800, but since we don't have specs on what came with your 1997 Esco Boat Trailer you'll need to take some measurements of your trailer frame, your current hardware, and bunk boards to choose the correct replacement parts.

  • Do Roller Bunk Brackets Have a Listed Weight Capacity
    Roller bunk brackets like the CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Mounting Brackets for Bunk Boards # CE10000G-4 do not have listed capacities.

  • Can CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Brackets be Modified for Mounting Vertical Bunk Boards
    Thank you for the kind words! I do not think there will be enough of the L bracket to properly support the boards because of the bolt head. You might be able to use alternate, lower profile hardware though obtained from a local auto parts store. The bracket is only 1-3/8 inches wide with the mounting holes centered putting them approximately 11/16 inches in from the edge on center. Subtract how far the bolt head sticks out and you are left with maybe 3/8 of an inch. Seems too close for...

  • Can the CE Smith Assemblies # CE10000G-4 be Submerged for Long Periods of Time
    The CE Smith Bolster and Swivel Bracket Assemblies # CE10000G-4 do have a galvanized finish for superior rust resistance but they are meant to be installed on boat trailers and not really meant to stay submerged for extended periods of time. Although the finish will be better than a steel bracket without the finish, I am not sure how long they would resist rust like that. I am not quite sure how your whole lift system works I don't know if the 9" height is long enough for your application....

  • How To Convert a Boat Trailer from Center Rollers to Bunk Rollers
    Yes, it is possible to switch from center rollers to bunk rollers on a boat trailer. For this, you will first need to remove the center rollers and then you can install a set of bunk rollers, part # CE27710 along with part # CE10000G-4 to support the hull. Then, in order to support both the port and starboard sides you can use part # CE27600. I have attached a photo of a similar setup with bunk boards instead of bunk rollers for the hull.

  • How To Choose the Correct Roller or Carpeted Bunk Boards for a Trailer
    The size of bunk board or bunk roller you will need for your boat trailer is based off the hull size. However, generally speaking the manufacturer knows what size roller/bunk works best for the boat/trailer. Therefore I recommend using the same size that the trailer came with but it wouldn't hurt to go a bit longer if you have room. If you are switching from rollers to carpeted bunk boards then I would go longer. For the carpeted bunk board option we have part # CE27800 which are 36"...
