yup, that is the plan. question is how far can i go before the chine is a problem. i can maybe move them in 3-4" each end at the back and still have the chine go between the rollers.

i'll take it to loch lomond and pop it in for an hour and do the work.

hopefully that will get me the room i need.

cheers

Will it be better if you get trailer in deeper or won't it make much difference

Put a couple of 90 degree bits of angle on the swing beam and it'd work.

Bought keel roller, will work out how to get it on with some angle iron.

Will also move the rollers in a few inches.

Cheers

Just took a look at mine, the rollers under the stern are a lot closer together than yours. Whilst mine sits high on the trailer, I have had no issues launching and recovering (single handed, as always!). Just have to be careful when lining up for recovery. Looked at getting mine lower on the trailer, but concluded that the forefoot would suffer as you have encountered, so left well alone.

I also had the same issue when initially setting up my SBS trailer - I set the rollers to keep the keel as low as possible to reduce overall height on the road as well as making it easier to launch (?)
When recovering, the first thing to contact was the keel on the centre of the swing beam
I moved the rollers closer together and all's fine now
Cheers

I drive mine onto the trailer and I've always found a centre roller on the back edge of the trailer causes more problems than it solves. 3" out either way and the bracket of the roller runs a gouge along the side of the bottom edge of the bow and pushes the boat out of alignment. If you're going to do it then I'd go for a "combination" roller to give you a bit more scope for error.
