It's difficult to screen shot this because it goes away when the reply box loses focus.  Not to be deterred... 2 computers and 3 different operating systems later:

The bunks don't go all the way back.  They go further now than they did. The transom support rollers sit about two inches in from the back. 

You want your transom taking the load. I would probably spend the time to make the adjustments.


I agree, I would hate to see all your hard work bite you later down the road, I know it will be frustrating to rework it, but in the end it will be worth it, honestly you will be glad you did, you come this far with so much great improvements,  keep on keeping on, cheers

Not sure what arrow you are taking about Dan, can you take a screenshot?

This may contribute to the formation of a hook in your hull while trailering with a motor on the transom.

I ment to ask, do your bunks flow past your transom, wasn't sure, thought them rollers looked like your last point of contact, which wouldn't be good
