Launching a boat by myself can be tough. And if I have a line only tied off to the bow, there’s a chance my boat or someone else’s could get damaged in the process. I found that using a long rope tied to a forward cleat at one end and the stern at the other makes things easier and safer. The rope gives me a better grip, and it allows me to walk my boat off the trailer and down to the dock with control over both the bow and stern.
