    IIRC the Triton owner's manual says the tower post should be close to vertical, not angled forwards or backwards steeply.

    The Triton winch assembly is highly adjustable in multiple ways. With the winch post locked in at (somewhere close to) vertical, you can then adjust the height and angle of the bow roller arm to bring the bow roller into a good position against the hull.

    And of course slide the entire winch tower assembly (and maybe the support rail) forward and back as needed to get the hull positioned for proper bunk support and good tongue weight.

    You want the winch strap to pull the nose of the ski DOWN onto the roller. That way the front of the ski does not move up and down. The front of the ski moving up and down is what causes rear straps to come loose.

    I added a second 'strap guide roller' to my Triton winches to better direct the strap tension forces.



    I also replaced the factory blue Triton rollers with Stoltz orange rollers. Less paint abrasion than the blue rollers, just much nicer roller material.
