Any ideas on the best way to secure the bow of a Skerry to a trailer? I plan to use the trailer's boat winch--not because I need it to haul the little boat onto the trailer, but "because it is there" and I think it's a good way to make sure the bow stays in place while traveling. I have a pad eye mounted near the tip of the breasthook and a short bit of line run from there to the winch hook, but I don't like securing it that way--will definitely mar the finish.
I'm going to search the forum and pictures to see if anyone has come up with an idea. Perhaps there is some kind of eye I can attach to the stem end with a plate on the inside so I don't rip a big hole in the boat. I've seen some boats with holes in the bow and some kind of black plastic inserts, but I'm not sure I want to use that method, unless I get feedback assuring me that is the best way. If so, where do I find the inserts/grommets?
Thanks for any help you can give me. In the meantime I'll search and see what I can find out.
