Double trailer bunk help
Picked up a nice trailer this weekend from alohr. Great guy to deal with and I like the trailer but I'm having some difficulty setting the bunks right.
GPRS have those chines under them I've got the bunks between Them but in order to keep the ski centered on its winch I've got them a little too close together. I've got it all the way over against the side of the trailer.
So I could redrill the holes and slide the whole thing closer to the middle but right now its only 2 inches from the centerline right now. And my plan is to get a 3 seater which is wider so I'm trying to leave room for the next ski.
Seller offered to buy it back if I don't like it, I just have to make my mind up to fix the bunks or get a different trailer.
My goal is to get a double and be done with it and I'd like for the trailer to be able to hold a large 3 seater.
Its got 1100 lb springs and tires so its good for the weight.
Here's how it looks
Ive got it centered up better since then.
Any ideas? Links to brackets?

Myself I would cut the bracket back and slide it over a little more and call it a day. (Looks like there is easily an inch you could trim without affecting the brackets strength).
Or buy these and than you can slide it over a few inches. http://www.easternmarine.com/8-galva...cket-kit-81210 **actually looking back at pictures these may not help but hard to tell**
Personally I think you are going to have similar issues with most two place trailers.

I thought about doing traditional bunk mounts like that but in order to get it truly right I need the outside bunk to be over the side rail. Hence the need for a bracket that extends out like a v shape

And to set tounge weight you just get a total weight and find 10 percent and set the tounge weight at that with some sort of scale under the tounge?
And its okay to have the bunks under the trim tabs right

I set my tongue weight at 250 lbs but in pulling with a Yukon with air ride that like a little more weight.
You could get a little bracket to mount the outer bunk on top on the frame.

As long as it dosent want to shift I'm okay right? Its sorta on a chine I can't hurt that can I?
I might have to do that just mount the bunk to the outer frame
