I think we can all benefit from sharing ideas and experiences on threads such as this, and I appreciate your input. I have 2 sailboats on trailers and over the years I have developed a tremendous appreciation for forces involved in hauling boats down the road and launching them from all sorts of ramps. These days I just want to do it with minimum risk, even if it involves spending some extra money (which I truly hate to do in general). I try not to push my luck if I don't have to, because I believe we are all given a limited amount of it in life, and I want to save it for those truly worthy moments...
