+1 3 ratchet straps cut to correct length, takes 5 mins and boat is secure to the trailer, and jsut as quick next time you launch

= 1 fro 2 x rear ratchet straps, from transom eyes to trailer, and 1 from front bow eye to trailer + safety chain to snubber post, all cut to length makes securing boat a simple /safe task
