Are you talking about in the trailer position or just down?

looking to see how far the motors sit off the back of the last bunk mine sit pretty far. Just concerned weight is not supported. This is my first out boat so I may just be paranoid.

just make sure that the back of the hull itself is fully on the trailer. I like to leave a half inch to an inch of bunk hanging past the back of the boat to be sure.

the location of the engines Vs. the bunks don't matter, it's the transom and the bunks.

Agreed. Here is a pic of my Dad's boat(not a CC, but you get the idea). You can see the bracket and motor are pretty far back.

All hulls, whether on a lift or trailer, SHOULD be completely supported all the way to the transom's vertical edge. All my lifts and trailers are built this way, if not, you WILL get a hook in the hull over time.
Sorry carguy, I don't have any pics to post.
