    How to properly set up trailer?

    To make a long story short, I just gave my trailer a serious overhaul (new bunks, wiring, and lights) and would now like to make sure it is set up properly for my ski. What is considered proper (as it relates to things such as bunk placement)? I have a 2010 GTX iS 215 so my ski is 12 feet long and it has the S3 hull. I took a few pictures of the current set up which I know needs to be adjusted. Any help is appreciated.

    I would bring the bunks in one hole on each side to try and get between the skegs. I think the skegs are why the ski is not sitting straight. (left side sits correct but right side does not, when looking from the front)

    So you think in one hole towards the center, not out to the last hole? Obviously after I did that I could raise winch so the rubber fits properly under the nose of the ski.

    Yes I would move them both in one bolt hole, than the ski should sit straight and centered.

    They came with the trailer, one of the few items that didn't need replacing...
