Sunfish Mast Support Trailer Tie
Category: Boats, Sunfish, trailer, sailboats
Problem: Securing the Sunfish to the trailer without putting a line on the bow handle.
Action: Use something inserted into the mast hole, wrapping the trailer winch line around it, and through the bow handle so that the tension is borne by the insert and mast hole and not by the bow handle.
Result: It works great!
Additional Thoughts: Instead of bringing the trailer winch line in through and around, it might be just as easy to have a line that goes around the mast support and the trailer winch connects into that, pulling the bow into the bow chock on the trailer.
