Getting the trailer situation figured out...

All of the bunks and rollers are as high as they can go but they're not high enough to allow the boat to move forward a few more feet on the trailer. It looks like One or two more inches of clearance is all that's needed so I've decided to ad another layer of 2x6 to the bunks then re-carpet. This should work- I think

What fall guy said. I get way more worried on the road with my boat on a trailer than I do with the boat in the water. Get the weight distribution wrong and it will feel wonky. Maybe that's because I'm a sailor and used to doing about 6 knots.

Adding wood to the bunks would be the quick fix until you get time to fix it but if it makes it work who cares you will need to move your winch forward a bit but that is no big deal on my boat i had to add a extention on the vertical on the bow tie down so the winch was pulling the bow up and forward
but that is no big deal not having enough weight on the hitch is a big problem the boat can cause handeling problems and that is your bigest problem.

To be honest, that trailer looks small for the boat that is on it and I think that is ultimately the source of the problems. It may be a better idea to look for a slightly bigger one and then peddle the one you have now rather than invest in band-aid fixes.

Can't tell from your pictures if there is enough length left of the tongue to move the trailer winch forward so the boat is correctly placed on the trailer.

Cheap source for trailer parts like fenders is:

Since we have 5 trailers we use them from time to time.

Thanks everybody ! I appreciate all your good ideas and thoughts. Today I added another layer of 2 x 6 and re-carpeted. This will give me an additional one and a half inches of clearance. I also realigned some of the rollers. Tomorrow I plan to remove the wheels and work on reattaching the fenders. The plan is to use some galvanized pipe (with hex bolts paasing thru) as spacers to push the fenders further out away from the boat. It should work very well.

Netpakrat you are absolutely right about the trailer being a bit too small. I think it will be OK though once I make the aforementioned modifications

This is the same company where I bought my tailer hitch assembly. Thanks OQ!
