New owner PS209 - prop and trailering questions

Hello all. New Mastercraft owner here and new to the site. I now have a new-to-me '05 PS 209. I mostly slalom, but decided on the 209 over a 197 for the extra space. I've read enough of these threads to know pics are required on this site for new purchases so there you go ...

So here's my problem... Took it out for the first time yesterday. Ran around the lake, three people skied, and headed back. Cruising back to the dock, running at around 30 mph, I feel a sudden loss of power and much vibration. Engine seems normal while at idle and seems to rev up fine, but vibration while under any speed. Guessed that i may have dinged a submerged log or something. I inspected the prop after getting it back on the trailer and notice a small ding. Pics are below. Would this small ding cause this? If so, i would be interested in hearing suggestions for a new prop for a '05 PS209 for better slalom ski performance and sugguestions on where I can get this one fixed to have as a spare.

Here's my other problem... The boat came with an '02 PS209 trailer. I've read about others having trailering problems with the early 209s. The bow eye catches on the front V-bunk if you're launched too deep. Solution seems to be to launch deep to get bunks wet, then come up shallow to get the boat on/off and give 'er hell. As with anything, its a learning process, and I think i'm getting it. Have others replaced/modified the front V to allow the bow eye to pass? Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks all in advance. This site has been very helpful to me already!
