2002 X10: is this the stock ballast water inlet?

Hi, in the attached picture, my boat is not fully loaded on the trailer: it is hanging over about 3 feet at the back. At the port side there is the water inlet for the 2002 X10 KGB ballast system.
I am wondering if this the stock inlet, because it sticks out a bit. And when I fully load the boat on the trailer, it is actually hitting the left center bunk, which cannot be right.
Any ideas? Thanks!

That looks like the main water intake for the cooling system.

What kind of trailer do you have? An original Mastercraft trailer? Reason I ask, is it appears to be an non OEM trailer, the bunks could be positioned a little different which is why it is interfering with that intake port.

I think the main water intake is at the other side. That is flat in the hull. See picture.

The trailer is an original Mastercraft. I got it with the boat last year. Thus somehow I assumed this was the original combination, but never specifically asked.
If the trailer is original, then the ballast system might have been installed afterwards.
Or this water inlet might have been repaired and replaced with an OEM.

Let me know if you have other thoughts.

Here is a picture of the trailer.

Could anybody post a picture of their 2002 X10 ballast water inlet?

Thanks!

I found this part on MCpartsDepot, thus it looks like this might well be the stock water intake.

I am still puzzled why it is positioned such that it hits the bunk.

I am planning to replace the bunks end this season. Would it be a good idea to make this one a bit shorter to give the water intake clearance?
