dont know what i am doing wrong

I am having dramas geting my  brand new dingy back on the trailer , never had this drama before with my past boats as they were drive on , and i have had a few whinch on  , wifey is good at controling the dingy at the the ramp but it slides of the new trailer , 

Ps thanks to the young blokes that lifted my dingy back  on to trailer straight  at point peron ranp 2 days ago with a 40 hp yamy hanging of the back who said aussie kids were week these days
