View Poll Results: Torsion axles trailers: Do you attach the stern of your boat to the trailer?
Prior to trailering your boat, do you attach the "stern" of your boat to the trailer with any type of straps? There is another thread about someone who bought a boat whose previous owner did not use any type of straps to attach the stern to the rear of a tandem torsion axle trailer.
A good friend lost his boat off the roller trailer in the center of town when his cable broke and the boat rolled off the trailer into the street resulting in some nice gelcoat rash.
FWIW the misconception still remains in the other thread that stern straps can keep a boat from launching fwd. Here's what they look like in April of 2012 approximately 15000 miles on the trailer since I installed the new axles and 200 + immersions in saltwater.

Due to the axle design, on a tandem or triple setup, each wheel has independent dampened suspension.
If you get a flat on a tandem or tripple and don't have a spare, you can just take off the flat and go on down the road at a safe speed. The corrosion (CRC) really works well when it comes to protecting the torsion arms, castle nuts, and the disk brake mounting brackets.

This design keeps the hull of the boat in contact with the trailer bunks without the inherent bounce associated with a typical leaf spring designed suspension. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
With torsion axles, rear straps are not needed to keep the hull from bouncing on the trailer.
