Makes sense. When you're recovering, the bunks are angled downwards parallel (or roughly so) to the slip. The boat is horizontal. the only contact between the bunks and the hull wil be towards the nose. How much depends on how shallow your trailer is when you recover, and the slope of the slip.

Interesting - I'm going to have to mod my trailer soon after getting it as unfortunately the Vipermax hull isn't straight along the keel and the SBS rollers are not adjustable - so it only sits on 3 in the middle. Haven't decided whether to try and build a row of raised rollers towards the stern, or take the easy route and just make a bunk supporting the stern section of the keel, but if I take the easy option some of this may be just the ticket

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
