Bought the Hobie AI Trailer and cradle set.. Question on the mounting the cradles - how do you tell which edge faces foward (i.e., toward front of trailer)?

It appears that one edge has a bigger lip than the other.. any pictures to help clarify?

sorry if a repeat question, but I searched and could not find an answer :(

I struggled with the same problem. I trialled both ways and ended up going with what I thought fitted better. I don't think it matters that much but there is a subtle difference. How about adding an arrow Hobie?

We tried that for a while - but sometimes the decals fell off - or worse, they got installed backward.
The curved edge is rearward facing - the flatter edge faces forward.
