What I’ve found is that when launching you can immerse the trailer until the stern roller is submerged and the boat just floats off. But when retrieving, it is better to keep the trailer further out, so that the stern roller is out of the water. Then you winch the boat onto it. Once on the stern roller it is easy to control. I used to retrieve with the trailer further in, and had a devil of a job aligning the boat with the rollers. It would always end up with the main chine off the roller.
Try the trailer further out next time.
