Looks like the anchor needs to be up front.

I know a diver who parks his SIB this way when overnighting at a hotel (presumably to really drain it out. As I recall, he has some lumber stands that are inserted while someone hold the trailer nose up.

FWIW, it is a good idea to store a trailer boat with the keel sloped to the rear and the drain plug removed; accumulated rain water can overload the trailer. Though the pic is a little overkill in this regard.

I reckon the axle needs to go back about a foot! On the motorway that set-up could weave like a basketmaker.
