So I broke down and purchased a new prop, but it'll barely clears the trailer, probably have 1/4" clearance, maybe less. for shimming should I shim the entire bunk or can I just do the end? Probably raise it 1/2"...

use 2 shims on each of the rear-most bunk supports and 1 on each of the 2nd set of supports from the rear. 1 shim = piece of HDPE 3/8" or so.

I got mine directly from boatmate, but it looks to be very similar to the boards I've seen at West Marine.
