That should get the job done nicely. Is your tongue height a little high in that pic or just the angle?

I knew someone would notices that angle. Yes the tongue is a little high, my father is fully convinced it tows better this way. It just makes me sweat pulling out an awkward driveway because i dont have a prop gaurd. I'll be picking up a different hitch in the upcoming weeks.

I have become more sensitive to trailers being level since I got my '77 with a tandem where it is more critical. You will have better visibility with your trailer being leveled as it will bring the bow down. I would also be worried about the prop, but I understand how parents can be about some things.

Definitely run your trailer level, maybe even a little low on the tongue. It will protect your prop and be easier to load on the trailer at the ramp. Our boat's weight is pretty evenly spread on each side of the axle, you shouldn't see too much sag on your escape by running the tongue a little low.

Nice looking '04 Xstar you have there......I wouldn't cover that yellow (unless it's in bad condition or something)
You could always add some vinyl graphics or striping, maybe black or blue. (I always liked yellow/blue together on a boat)
