Hey man, you want that engine hump centered or slightly forward on your bunks, not back... If you're too far back, you'll feel the boat teeter on the lift.

You do not want to stress the hull or god forbid have the boat fall out the back - which would more than likely total the boat

Had a neighbour on the lake park his boat too far back returning late one night, woke up the next morning to his lift tipped back and his deck boat in the water up to the windshield.

Good to know, thanks! Centering the engine makes sense.

I have a Shore Station with an 87 ProStar 190 on it. I used these bunk brackets, and they worked great. Did you get the newer model with the "V" cross-member? I wish I had that model, it buys you some room to get the fins to clear.

Here's how they look on my lift. Unfortunately, I can't measure the bunks for your anytime soon though.



PS, the best thing I ever did was find a canopy top for my lift! If yours didn't come with one, keep your eyes open locally. Sometimes they'll pop up.

Thanks for the link! No, I don't have the v-bunks, so the taller bunk brackets will be helpful. And no, no canopy, but I'm keeping an eye out for one.
