I use both pins and a line around the tops. If you put orange shock cord around trailering stuff and use a checklist, the process is quicker and more robust

The trailer bearings have likely been reworked so no way to know what’s in there now. The trailer tongue on a 2002 steel trailer is near end of life, unless it is a lightlyused fresh water boat.

That 130 miles for that leg, so something like 35 gallons of gas
