Boat Skids


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

Could someone please explain what are boat skids.

my understanding is that, its a couple of blocks wrapped in fabric placed either side of the hull of a boat , so it can be lifted with a hoist,crane etc so as not to damage the hull?

Can someone clarify pls?

Some trailers have skids some have rollers.

The skids are simply timbers running lengthways up the trailer that are covered with fabric,vinyl or rubber.

When pulling the boat up the hull "skids" along. The skids offer support over a greater area than can be attained with a series of rollers.
