A trip to Lowe's for some vinyl lumber and some outdoor carpet and I was able to build up the bunk.
The vinyl lumber was near the moulding aisle. I was able to get a 10' 1" x 3.5" piece (yeah, like a 5/4 x 4). I had them chop it into 3x 40" pieces.
I used 2 1/2" ceramic coated deck screws to stack those together for a 3" rise, then covered them in outdoor carpet. Luckily I had some double sided carpet tape laying around to hold the carpet to the vinyl as I didn't have any stainless steel staples.
The net result is that the bow is lifted about 3". This gives a nice straight shot from the crank to the bow eye. She looks a bit more aligned with the trailer rather than having the stern up so high in the air.
