bad idea? midpoint trailer roller

I have a rollers on the back of my raft trailor was thinking about adding one more set about mid trailor to get my 14'er on the trailor just a bit easier. That would mean tho my raft would be sitting on rollers all the time. Bad idea?

How about this, find a piece of pvc pipe a larger diameter. Throw it loose on the trailer deck, it will roll under the boat acting as a second roller.

to continue with the loose PVC idea, put caps on it so when it falls into the drink, it floats. I have used this set up for several years.

I drilled a hole through PVC pipe on the end and ran some webbing thru and made a loop. You will like having something to grab when its time to pull the pipe off.

thanks for the input buzzards like all those ideas going to put the PVC to work. My two rollers on the back sit right on my skids for my raft. Im using the northern tool rollers people talk about on this website. the rollers are 2 5/8". Do i need to move those rollers u think?
