Just wondering what the proper position is for the cross bars on the trailer. My front one is a few feet forward of the front tramp pylons. Is that ok, or should it be directly under the pylons? Thanks

Ideally, you want the trailer crossbars to each support 1/2 the weight of the boat. Because of the "V" shape in the front of the trailer, the front crossbar tends to carry more weight. It's not a big deal.

The balance point of the boat is roughly the shroud attachments. You also need to have the boat forward enough (or the axle back enough) to have ~ 40-50 lbs of tongue weight.
