measure it while it is on the trailer. Bunks should be cut square and be under the lifting strakes. Been a while but I think the bunks on the PP should be 33" inside to inside....but it's been a while so it's probably wrong.

Be patient....take the time to get it right...even tho you may need to adjust and re-adjust numerous times. Mine was set up half ass for almost 6 months and was a pain getting it back on straight and level. Finally spent half the day on and off....its right now and is a piece of cake...straight and level, every time.

Good luck.

For every lift I purchased (3), the company has been there everytime for the fine adjustments.

Take your time, get aligned and drop it into gear and back to neutral quickly. Very small and calculated movements. It is not a jet ski going up on a jet dock.

If your talking bunk adjustment? If you have a trailer measure it then you can get it fine tuned after the boat is on and off a couple times. Just make sure the bunks go all the way past the edge of the transom, don't let any hang over.
