Here are a few photos I took today... before and after... not really to noticeable... front rollers down a bit and moved back a bit.. rear rollers up a bit and now more under the transom... winch post stop raised.. if I keep it on this trailer a I will probably convert it to bunks.. there's still a little wood left to remove and some dirt but its still wet today..

I bought the trailer to get the boat home so I had to do a quick adjustment to everything on site as the boat was hanging above it.. it was a quick thing and wasn't the best but good enough to make the trip..
After work I spent a couple hours jacking up the boat and lowering the front rollers to the lower holes and sliding the rollers in and out and forward and back so they were under the cross supports as best I could them.. I raised the rear rollers to the top holes and adjusted them the same.. that brought the bow down some and I was able to adjust the winch post so the stop is now over the bow eye and it pulls straight forward instead of down.. the whole thing looks better now..
I cleaned out most of the wet gunk that I'm guessing was about 100 lbs. I'll post some photos tomorrow.. this is going to be basically a back burner project but will be worked on a little at a time when I have excess materials from my other projects..







I've been to Dan's, I know all about those kind of jobs, how many burners do you have :hmm:
