I have seen Waves trailered with the aft roller on the end of the skegs, the boat sits higher, or behind the skeg, so it is lower. Getting it off of the latter means lifting up. Any experience on which is better? Stability, loading, room under etc. Thanks.

My trailer does not have rollers, rather it has rubber pads the boat sits on. Are you going to launch the boat from the trailer or beach wheels? I dont have any issues with the rubber pads while trailer launching the boat. I would not worry about a few inches in height between the rollers, pads or how the boat sits. The wave is fairly light and easily moved around.

Mine always sits on the main hull (skegs) w/front and rear rollers. I would be hesitant to tow with the rear hull resting on the upswept portion of the hull. Not sure how strong the hull is at that point. In the garage, I do pull the Wave forward and it walks off the rear rollers and give me more room in the garage.
