Trailer tie-down

Published date: October 10, 2013
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

This is how i tie the boat to the trailer.
I installed a cleat on the trailer frame, and I use two mooring-lines to
tie the boat.
First the mooring-line is looped around the mast, then it goes to the aft cleat secured with a turn,
then to the cleat on the trailer also with a turn to secure it and last a turn around the winch and it
is held tight with the cam-cleat for the jibsheet.
This is simple and easy, and it is making use of ropes already on the boat.
