Yes this thread crossed my mind yesterday when coming home. Wonder,should I fit a second towing eye?1 for the winch and 1 for the saftey chain,(as like most) 1 eye does both, small cost for peace of mind?

Do have a strap around transom pulling on trailer to stop backward movement but strap lets go or eye gives boat,boat on road.Not sure how to explain that to the insurance Co.
