I replaced the bunks and make them longer. Now I think I'm done with the trailer.

I usually jack mine up from the bottom. Standard automotive type hydraulic jack and some wood blocks.

I wouldn't. Probably wouldn't damage the boat, but that handle might snap. I think that forged eye bolt in the bow would be safer.

Can the boat be lifted by the front handle without damaging the boat?

I don't think they do, I may have to fix that.

I don't know, still thinking about it.
