Raft trailer board material cover?

Just bought a utility trailer that should haul my new to me 1985 Achilles around just fine. Temp fix for trip this weekend involves 3 2x4's run perpendicular to the trailer, then a 2x8 or 2x10 the length of the trailer for the tubes to sit on. I was thinking of covering the 2x10's in astroturf to avoid putting a heavy shellac on them to keep splinters from making it a very long trip with lots of patching.
It's a bucket boat, 14' long. Trailer is 10' on the box, figure 3 feet off the back and 1' off the front for hangover. Trailer tilts, so no roller at this point, but may want one later if I decide the tilt is a pain in the butt or something else.
Please give any thoughts you have on good or bad ideas.
Thanks from a newbie,
