1996 Bonefisher 16 Gunnels Uneven

Recommended Posts

Hull sitting on trailer appears twisted.  Height from top of gunnel to ground each side at forward bulkhead 1" lower on port.  Appearance very noticeable looking straight on from bow.

Anyone ever hear of this happening to these hulls?

Before you panic, check to see if there is a consistent gap between the deck cap and the hull. They had to refasten the cap to hull because the original screws were no long enough.  They clamped one side a little tighter than the other and created a similar issue on my Redfisher.

Have you checked trailer bunks and springs to see if they are sitting equally? Is the ground beneath the trailer relatively smooth?

That was my initial thought. Uneven ground

 You need to check this first. Your hull will twist or distort if the trailer bunks or ground (where the wheels contact) is uneven. Hulls are designed to bend and twist. That minimizes damage to the hull when you hit big waves or when trailering over uneven surfaces.
