So those blue rollers are too hard. Shame they were a good price.
I own two boats the one with the step isn't a rib its a Haines signature, which seemed to of been setup with the wrong trailer. Each time I launched the rear rollers tilted into the slot stopping the boat boat from coming off, after welding them so they didn't tilt and I no longer had any problems.

I did consider replacing the rollers with teflon skids but having had a Haines before with skids I found the rubbing through the gelcoat and fine stress fractures looked quite bad (I tow long distances on rough tracks).

In the last pic you can see the last to sets of rollers tilting into the slot, this was welded level.
