What size and wall thickness box are you using ? I'd be very worried by a single box on a length like that? I think you may get alot of bounce.......

What weight & lenght boat are you gunna put on it?

With the greatest of respect I wouldn't actually put a boat on that! It's going to either bounce a lot or fold in half with anything other than a very lightweight SIB on it!

Boat was only Strapped down at the bow, stern left the trailer whilst negotiating a roundabout. You should see the damage to the Stern

Lucky really no one else was involved.
Drawbar was 75mm x 50mm box !!!!!

I still regularly see boats being towed with only the bow strapped down. A pic of the stern might put someone off being that stupid again

What would be the smartest way to do it, don't like too much to use ratchet straps or ropes as now? Same with the bow, best/easiest way to attach a backup strap in addition to the winch strap. Here you get fined if not both end secured(seeing those pictures start to understand why...) and the winch is not considered as enough for the bow. Thanks

Hi, Ratchet strap from Bow eye to trailer Drawbar, or as we do use a yacht rigging bottle screw. Stern tie down with 2 ratchet straps one from each ski/towing eye to trailer lashing point. Works for us ... even when we had an axle collapse at 40MPH trailer and boat stayed together!!!!

Thanks, like the idea with the yacht rigging bottle screw. That in combination with plastic covered wire might be a safe and neat solution, will give it a try.
