Advice for fitting a trailer to Bombard C5

Hello, I'm looking for some advice for customizing my EZ Loader 14-17' trailer for my Bombard C5. The boat lives on the trailer so I figure I better get it supported well. I've attached some photos to show what the current set up is. Right now the keel is taking most of the weight and the tubes are on the top of the wheel wells. What part of the boat should take most of the weight? Should the tubes be supported throughout? I've done a search of the forum but can't find much about his so I appreciate any help (and even better with photos) if anyone has experience with this. Thanks!

You want slightly higher and much wider bunks under the tubes stop them rubbing in the wheel arch

Transom takes all the weight of the motor so a central support will help remover you only need to lift the transom slightly to launch

Years ago I had a Bombard C5 on a trailer, I supported it under the tubes just where the tubes join the hull, also a forward support to just take the bow weight and act as a steadying guide. There was nothing under the transom so no wear at the stern. If I come across a picture I'll post it for you.

All this info is excellent! Thank for the replies. I like the look of the Degraaf Trailers with the 10" support over the wheel well. I see that the way I have it now is also likely pushing the transom up as the joint between the tops of the transom and the tubes is starting to separate a bit.
