jackbronson posted a topic in Boat TalkHello, The Admiral and I shopped for months for a new (to us) bowrider to replace our 30 year old Starcraft. She sat on a Chaparral at the boat show, and a Chaparral is what we needed to buy. Two kids in college required us to 'settle' for a 2008 Chaparral SSi 190. Beautiful boat, well cared for, low hours. It's on a LoadRite roller trailer that came with the boat. I bought the boat from the original owner, and the trailer came with the boat new. We trailer regularly.Yesterday I noticed the boat bouncing up off the front rollers leaving the ramp. So I hooked up a video camera and went for a ride. Now this may be normal, but it seems that this boat is not sitting down properly on front set of rollers and is way too loose on the trailer. The rollers are all the way back at the transom. I use transom straps. The boat was pulled up snug to the bow stop.In this video I am leaving the driveway, you can see the boat floating over the forward rollers on the left side: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_kIeHtX_dIAnd, when I took a 90 degree right turn on a bumpy road, the right side of the boat completely rose up off the rollers in what appears to me to be way too much. 15 second mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rm3CzXt3_Wg I've always felt this boat seemed back heavy on the trailer.Can anyone provide any feedback on if this is normal? If not, how to correct? I've gotten suggestions to put a chain pulling down on the bow eye, but I would think if this was the case the boat and trailer would have come equipped as such when new. Thanks.
