I have a Shorelander trailer from 1988 which was modified for my Shamrock Predator. Right now, there is a 4x4 timber under the rear roller bank to raise it so the keel clears the cross-member. I only have 1" of clearance between the keel and cross-member. I want to eliminate the wooden blocks and lift the rear and front rollers about 3 inches and 6 inches respectively (since the boat's nose points down on the trailer). This will allow me to get up and down my hill without dragging my keel and rudder. To fix the problem temporarily, I've changer to a 2" drop on my trailer hitch but now the tongue is too low.
I came across this pic online. I'm looking for the vertical stanchions that bolt via U-bolt to the cross members and support the roller banks. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
Below is my trailer now...if you look closely at the rear rollers, you'll see the 4x4 spacer.
I figure now would be a perfect time to jack up the boat to work on the trailer since the engine is out...
