Looks like a well supported set up. If you drive very far you may get wear on the floor where the small center support contacts the boat bottom. I had to put two small padded rails on my trailer to support the bow without getting chafing. Just a suggestion.

While your working on your trailer replace those corroded u bolts and nuts before one breaks! I splurged on stainless parts for my trailer. I've seen too many trailers on the side of the road.

Sure wish my sib was nice and new. Dang, That looks good.

All the u bolts are only surface corrosion so they will be good,As for the center support i guess you mean the front center snubber block.

Yep, Snubber block. That sounds good. I was surprised how much my sib rocked on the trailer until I put some support under the bow. I had to make the contact surface larger to avoid wear on the floor material. I still have wear issues right at the bow where my "snubber block" is located. It doesn't just hit the rubstrake. It contacts the tube. Had to put in a patch. I guess it all depends on how far you tow? Have fun and keep an eye out for chafing on that clean boat.
