    should I drop my bunks?

    This is how the dealer had my trailer set up when I bought the ski. The front rides higher than the back. There are adjustment points to drop the front bunks down. i have to back the fenders at least 6 inches under water to launch the ski. Pros/Cons of dropping the bunks? Thanks for reading.

    Get a pic of the whole ski and trailer from the side. Its hard to tell from the close ups if its ok or not. Get a pic of the winch stand and the bow connection too.

    From what i see so far the setup looks ok.

    Yes I would drop the front down to the next hole. It was probably set up by 2 different guys at the same time, in a hurry.

    You could drop the front of the bunks if you wanted to. I dont see it making any difference on floating the ski off the trailer though.

    Make sure when you reposition the bow stop that it is above the hook on the ski and the strap comes from under the roller.
