If you could swap the roller axles for shorter versions, that should do the trick.

Bunks would be fine, but you'd need to be more careful aligning the boat when bringing it onto the trailer than with rollers, as bunk trailers tend to have keel rollers, the rear one being your first point of contact between the hull and trailer.

Hi guys
I just thought you would like to see the results of the finished winchpost and snubber following all your advice. I cut down the post and brackets and made the snubber fit above the D where it should to stop the boat riding forward. I then cut a large slot in the snubber for the winch strap to pass through.It now all works fine and fits a treat.
I didnt cut the drawbar short, as I thought I would leave the extra 18 inches to give more depth when launching / recovering. I can always cut it shorter later but I cant add on so easily!
The rollers are all set tothe middle now and I hope it will ride well
Thanks again for your help.
