New prop looks like its going to hit the trailer!

Got a new acme 4 blade for my 89 power slot. It looks like the prop is going to hit the trailer if I don't float it on and off. I hate not being able to drive the boat on, hook it up and go. I don't like the bar and now I have the trailer in so far it's a pain in the a&$. Any help appreciated.

I can't imagine that the new prop is significantly bigger than the old one. I agree, need pics and more info.

My 90 190 power slot with a 4 blade looks very close as well. But I never drive mind on or off. I'll grab a pic of mine when I get home from the gym. I've never hit my trailer with the prop, but I think I have had the prop drag or something when backing into my driveway and there is a spot that gets between my prop guard. Since I just got my prop refurbished I'm gonna make a skid plate for between the center two bars of the prop guard
