Billy, It sounds as if your rear beam could be too far forward (that's if I'm understanding your problem correctly & not barking up the wrong tree) You need to set the rear beam as far back as possible so that when the boat is on the trailer, the last roller is just about flush with the transom. I've got some piccies of my current set up I'll post later (6.4 on a SBS R4/2600 EL). Also, a 2 speed winch might help, use the low gear to get the boat over the "hump" & then switch to high gear. I've got a 2 speeder, but only have to use the low speed if the slip is particularly steep.

Hi Dave I think you have my problem. But the worst thing is the front cradle it's gorse than the back.

Billy , I've had this set up for ten years now , and never really had any problems with it . It seems to correlate what PD is saying about the rear set of swinging rollers being back by the transom. Sorry picture is a bit dark , but it was taken in Bonny Scotland.......

Hi Jambo,

I have the standard Rapide Roller that came with the boat from Ribcraft. Regularly have to work solo as I have lazy deck hands! As you can see from this thread showing the trailer set up the rear rollers are right on the transom. Hope this is helpful.

Hi Dave bloody big fingers on iPhone it's a curse! Having looked at AJ's set up it looks as if my front cradle is far to far forward it's at the at the consul or maybe in front. If it was the same as AzJ' and I think yours it would be flat for half the pull up the trailer on two cradles. All this to get a boat out the water what the hell i will just keep it in next winter save the hassle.
