Adjusting trailer rollers..

Hi all,
Is there an easy way to adjust the height of trailer rollers other than "half an inch more will do next time!" method??? I've been thinking about adjusting them a little higher than they should be than try to settle them down someway...

Any suggestions to find the ideal setup which all rollers apply uniform support on the hull?

thanks,
Memo

Used a car jack before now and a plank of wood to spread the load. Elf and safety aside just jack up each end one at a time and adjust away. Aternatively if your rollers are mounted on a vertical post you could try jacking that up a bit then swopping sides.

If you know someone who can hoist your boat with slings (a couple of forklifts would do it), that works quite well. If you're jacking, I think I might be inclined to jack up one side at a time, rather than an end at a time. Don't be tempted to set the rollers too high - remember that the higher the boat sits on the trailer, the deeper the water you need to get it off when you launch.
