Re: Easier beach retrieval?

I caution against winching the boat up onto the trailer. Most sailboat trailers, including domromer's, have bunks, not rollers. The boweye is not secure enough to withstand the kind to forces needed to drag the boat up onto, then across the bunks. At least the one built into my O'Day Mariner was not. Now I have one more leak source and one more boat project to do instead of sail.
