    Need pic of FX SHO on trailer....

    I need a pic of the front of the ski on the trailer. I am trying to get my trailer set up right for the front of the ski. I have the "roller" touching right above the front hook on the ski, but it is a pain when loading to get the front of the ski's bumper above the roller. I noticed the hook on the SHO is alot higher than the one on my VX Deluxe. Also, do you guys let your strap run on top of the roller or under it? I hope this makes sense....

    If it helps, here's how mine looks, and you MUST have the strap UNDER the front to stop it coming up and forward off the trailer into the back of your car under a sudden stop.

    That helps some. You have another roller on the bottom to help the bow stay up. My problem is that the eyelet is so close to the front bumper that when my ski gets to that point the bumper "hits" the roller and you have to pick it up some to get it to go over the roller. It is hard to explain. I wonder what it would hurt to just let the roller rest against the eyelet maybe half way down or maybe even at the bottom of it. I was told that it needed to be at the top though.

    Yeah I lowered it some. I did not want to go too low or I will be under the eyelet. I will try it today and see how it loads up.

    LOL I am just a little frustrated with the trailer at this point. Mainly because the dealer did not set it up good. I had to lift the SHO off the trailer yesterday and adjust the bunks too. They did not have them where they were between the "ribs" on the hull! When I got the trailer, the rollers were tightened so tight that they did not even roll. Its all minor things, but usually the little things aggravate the poop out of you, ya know? When I had my jet boat the trailer was set up perfect, it would settle on the trailer like a glove with no problems.

    I originally had mine set a bit higher until I noticed the edges of the bow roller cutting into the plastic molding on the ski.
