Trailering

Postby Shagbark » Mon Oct 09, 2017 7:52 pm

When I purchased the boat, it came with a cargo strap securing it to the trailer. Since then I have always used a cargo strap when trailering, but now I'm thinking that may be over kill. Is securing the boat to the trailer necessary when trailering?

Absolutely a strap is needed during trailering. The Day Sailer is fairly light and a small bump will result in it shifting the boat off the trailer. I have seen boats leaving a ramp area without the strap on and the boat came off the trailer with significant damage.

In that case, I may have to buy a cargo strap as well. :?
