Do you have any photos that shows how that could be done?
Couple of ways of doing it:
Flanged coupler (flange fits over tube and is bolted to the trailer rails)
U-Bolts over the tube to a plate on opposite side.
If you're launching in sea water, either try and get hot dip galvanized stuff or plan on replacing hardware every couple of years.
