    shorelander not good for v hull?

    i have a 97 xp and 05 rxt - i got a double trailer (shorelander) and the spacing between the bunks is such that when the ski is on it (seadoo xp 97) the v hull hits the base of the frame, see pic down the middle between the bunks).
    i have not been able to get the skis on because i am thinking i need to raise the bunks but then am i going to be too high for water access... or should i move the bunks closer in but then i am thinking tip over danger?

    what are my options - maybe a cradled design trailer is the only way to go?

    Find out what bunk spacing other owners with XP hulls are using. Perhaps a closer bunk spacing is all that is needed.

    Typically there is an optimal bunk spacing for each hull model which is as wide as possible yet fits the hull bottom between the chine ridges.

    will post the question in the respective forums... thanks
    Looking at my single which is currently holding the rxt - there is no way i can have the bunks on the double as wide as they are now on the cradled design single(29 in vs 16). It would take welding extended brackets but also taking care of the height because of the v hull.
    maybe this trailer is just too old...

    Yes, bring them in a few inches. I'd try splitting 3" and go from there.

    I had that same trailer. Shore lander makes extensions to raise the bunks up 2" or so.
