If the boat is on a trailer or cradle as you allude, then your best option is that the next time you pull the boat out of the water (trailer option) is to leave the boat a little further aft on the trailer thereby exposing the areas you didn't cover the last time. If the boat is on a cradle then I imagine that a travellift put it there. Again just have the operator position the boat slightly different the next time.
