I would recommend ditching the center cross brace otherwise you lose the entire purpose of using the PVC pipe. the pipe needs to be able to sag in the middle so as to conform to the shape of the hull. This was the sole reason I pioneered the use of PVC as bunks for plastic boats.

Nice video music. Felt like a scene from a Tarantino movie. Yak is nice also.

Here's a video I made about 7 years ago of the trailer made for our PA's. It shows the use of PVC in better detail. Note that the center of the pipes are non-supported (the 2x4 you see is several inches below the pipe) so that they can flex and cradle the hull per it's natural shape. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPd5n83lY5k
