JL8Jeff said:Your winch post looks like it was already cut/customized by somebody and that extra cut in it could compromise the strength. It doesn't look like your boat is all that heavy so it probably isn't an issue but that post does not look like the original for the trailer to begin with. I'm not sure I would want to pull the boat that far forward since it's already a small trailer. With a more angled post you might be able to mount it behind the extension and keep the boat back farther. With your winch post you would probably need to have some extensions welded on each side to be able to fit around your wider tongue extension to keep the boat in the right place on the trailer.
I circled the spot on your post that looks cut and could be starting to crack along it.
The spot you circled is an optical illusion. I marked (with a blue sharpie) the spot where I would have had to cut the post for it to stretch around the angle iron. Thought better of cutting it so here we are. lol
The boat doesn't weigh much at all. I didn't have a chance to mock it up yesterday and today isn't looking much better. Hopefully tomorrow Ill be able to do it.
