Will it come back????

I got a cal 21 that has been sitting for many years on a trailer incorrectly. The bottom of the hull seems to bow inward.

My questions are these:
1. Will the bowing on the port and starboard side come out on it's own as I use the sailboat and have it sitting on the trailer right?
2. If not how do I correct it.
3. How do I know if I have the right trailer for the boat?

The only damage i see is one small chip out of the gel-coat and small hair line cracks. It doesn't leak anywhere because I've had it in the water last year and the cabin was gone thru and found no leaks.

Thanks for the help

They flex a bit. I've noticed it on mine when on jackstands, particularly in the stern quarters.

You'd like your trailer to support the hull, via the bunks, alongside a good portion of the keel trunk. I'd have to go over and look at mine to tell what length it does that. I suspect about six-eight feet. And the trailer's forward pads should gently pinch the bow between them.
