Thanks, I'm not concerned about the ripples. I saw the frame flexing and assumed the ripples were a result.

There was no dealer involved. I bought it from a local shop and fixed it up.

It's really on me for underestimating how much trailer I needed.

That's what we're intending to do this afternoon.

Diver Dave, I appreciate the input and I'm sorry if this comes across as argumentative; maybe the pictures don't show it well but there is absolutely no question that the boat needs to be moved aft....

I don't really see how I can eliminate the bunk overhang when it's clear the entire boat needs to be moved further aft?
