My Hunter 140 did not come with a trailer, but I purchased a nice Shore Land'r off of Craigslist. Currently, when I trailer my Hunter 140, I use ratcheting straps around the stern to put downward pressure on the boat to keep it on the trailer. I also do one in the forward section near where the side stays attach. What are others doing? I wish the bow had a D Ring that I could use to attach to the winch on the trailer and two stern D Rings to use short straps to attach to the rear bottom of the trailer like traditional fiberglass power boats utilize. I've ordered a replacement V Block for the bow. I'm considering taking the winch "mast" to a welder to have it extended so I could winch the boat forward with the forestay base. Is that a bad idea?
