You can see the rear wheels, with the three under the black ski, and the one under the red ski.

-The bunks tend to "tip" one way or another. I'm going to modify these, when I do the other side, and leave the LAST wheel set with 3 on them, since they don't touch the hull when resting. This will prevent them from wanting to flop over, and help with clean loadings.
-Make sure your mounts are solid, and can not wobble. If these tip, they will certainly gouge the hull.
mine were locked down, they did not pivot. wierd bc the ski would roll off by itself if I let it... yes it is hard to drag the ski right to left. I just had it set up where it went on centered everytime...

if you experience any bowing bc of all those holes drilled and placement of support brackets, you may want to put and angle the full length under it...

Oh, just many of the roadwork sites we ran across as we tried to make it to the ride in NV. I think we counted 5... with about a 30min wait at each. Most were in California.

Apparently, they have money in Cali to fix up obscure roads in the middle of west bumblefuck now.
