I looked over your pictures again and I think you could even slide the tongue front if you wanted to. Seems like there is some extra near the boat. When I bought the roller trailer I had for my Sea Ray they set it up that the rear most roller was about 1 inch from the edge of the transom. That I think would really help with the tongue weight and then take the bounce out of the ride.

heck yeah. Just back from a test run. I have a good run that has dips, hills, curves open highway and stop lights. I jacked the trailer and moved the axles back 8.5 inches and lost at least 80% of the bounce. The handling and ride much more confident. I am betting I am still less then 10% tongue weight on a 7400 lb dry rig.


jack up the trailer w the boat on it, loosened up the axles, and moved it back 8.5 inches.
