I moved the boat easy took the tools with me to the ramp. Losened the strap to the length I guestimated was needed then backed down the ramp with a slight jerk at once it started to float. Pulled to the parking area and losened bolts and slid bow assembly back.

Before i did this the trailer was very unstable. Now it rides(pulls) like a dream
Yup.... an added benifit it will come off trailer easier because it's further rearward. On a boat of this size there shouldn't be so much excessive tongue weight.
From everything I've learned and read about trailer weight, the tongue weight should be about 12% of total weight.I'm pretty sure my tongue weight is way over 500lbs...I wonder what the ideal weight should be?
Mine was like that also
