Difficult to tell due to angle of pic but looks about right. Cav. plate 0 to 25 mm below keel is common. Mine works best 10mm below after a bit of trial and error.

As above, its difficult to tell but it looks about right.

Be careful with your trailer board, its illegal in a couple of ways and a bored bobby may take an interest.
