  The Bow is Heavier...

The easiest would be to adjust the trim of the kayak, although, depending on how stiff the pullies are, it might not help, as the bow pulley will always get less pull than the stern pulley (there is friction in 3 pulleys before the rope gets to the front).

You might want to pull the rope from both front and rear at the same time and have the center of the rope fixed. This way you control the angle. Same # of pulleys...

Or if your pulleys can swivel, tie-off both rope ends and pull down from the middle between the 2 center pulleys. Again, you control which side pulls how much.
