Not sure if my trailer is correct?

I am a newbie to SIBs and just bought a 2002 Futura MK2. The trailer has two boards that fit the boat between the keel and the speed tubes.
The transom sits firmly on the boards in back. Been reading that I should have support for the tubes. Looking at the way it is now, the boards are supporting the weight of the motor (50hp) and transom, but is the floor of the boat taking on too much weight. The tubes are unsupported. One quick option may be to run a board crossway under the front tube.
Any ideas or suggestions?
