I built a which post to bring it level with the bunks and attached the winch hook on the loop under the nose cone, plenty strong enough!
Tip, when your launching, just tip it right up, hold the bow, pull trailer out with other hand and lose boat onto sand/water
Recovering just do the reverse and let the trailer tip up when winching on
But if your on a proper slipway with deep water it'll just float on/off
