My 16' flats/bay boat has a single torsion axle trailer. What is the correct way to jack up one tire? Where would I place the bottle jack, axle or frame?

I just put a floor jack on the axle, mine boat is on a tandem with torsion axles, the frame is not close enough to the ground. Axles are steel, your frame is probably aluminum and would get marred
