Like the idea, makes sense

I strongly believe you need to extend your boards back towards the stern of the boat. I have a 25 footer and have had other boats before this, and this appears to me right off the bat the issue you are having. Check out most boat trailers and you should see those runner boards barely sticking out beyond the length of your boat.

If you are talking about the main runners they extend all the way to the back and even with the bottom of the boat

The rear of the boat has the euro transom with a step in it, any further back and the main runners won't be supporting anything

I don't have a very clear picture, but the main bunks extend to within 0 to 1/2" from the back of the boat when loaded, any further back they won't be supporting anything and even in current configuration I have to make sure the trim tabs are up when loading it will damage them

I'd put side guides in it. I put them on a cat I bought last year and they work great. If you get up on top of them you will just slide back off. With the slope of the ramp the front portion of the hull will it first but as you move farther on to trailer you will slide right in place.
I built mine myself because I couldn't find any stock one to fit.

Question help,trailer bunks

from your pic them lift strakes appear close to your big bunks, may be related to the stern movement, also hard unload--look at while boat on trailer, might widen those main bunks an inch or so, as someone suggested liquid rollers/liquid soap can help, also might install a couple of centering keel rollers(12") on trailer crossmembers, good luck
