Trailer Advice Need ASAP Spanner in hand, Does This Look Right??
After my battle to get my bunks off and put my roller conversion on im after some advice relocating the rails
Currently the rails are connected to my inner trailer rails
If you look at this picture you can see the rollers are on the hull crease
Would I be better of moving the roller rails to the outter edge of my trail moving away from the ride plate and crease?
Also moving the rails to the outter edge it would lower the ski down on the trailer

The hull is fine for placing the rollers at any position on the hull. The one thing you don't want to do obviously is to have a roller sit on a strake.

That reflection on the boat would be cool to be air-brushed on the boat! looks like a castle wall!. like a rock ship.lol
Try the outside and see how that fits. try to get them on the flats in between the strakes.

with a lot of boats ie my boston whaler-rollers in place of bunks NOT RECOMENDED. have seen keel rollers (strongest part of the hull) used with bunks.
ADD A SAFETY CHAIN if your not already useing one. saw a boat come completely off a trailer at the entrance to our local access (slight incline) when their winch strap broke.

PWC hulls are fairly strong for their size. None of the PWC guys using roller bunks have reported any issues.
A secondary strap or chain is always a good idea, to ensure the bow doesn't slide back if the winch or winch strap fails.
And replace the winch strap if it is getting old. Don't wait for it to break first
The Towing and Trailers forum on here has lots of good threads
