No matter how shallow or deep I load my boat on this trailer the keel seems to be sitting ever so slightly on the trailer. What am I doing wrong, or how should I adjust the bunks to ensure this isn't destroying the boat?

Yep, you have plenty of angle bracket to add a 1 1/2” spacer under the main bunks then thru-bolt it and move the front angled bunks up.
Thank you both, What material is best to use for the spacer? When you say to move the front angled bunks up, what's the best method to do this? Should I Just use the same material I use for the bunk spacer placed under the front brackets as well?

You could tighten your winch more to pull it down

I'm not sure I follow, in this photo, the winch is fully tightened and the bow is touching the roller?
Just a suggestion, that how I get mine from bouncing around. And none of the pictures I see show the roller

You don't want your forward/centering bunks to be supporting weight.
Thanks, I don't think they are because they are pretty easy to move by hand. I'm going to take your suggestion on moving my back bunks up a bit, I'm hoping that will bring it up enough to keep it off the trailer.

I'd also add some carpet to cover the ends of the main bunks?
