I don't use a bow hook or a winch. The boat is light enough I just back the trailer half-way into the water and pull it up onto the cradles. I use two straps to tie down, basically over each thwart. Silly question, but is the sharp edge of the board facing aft?

:: I PUT A SHACKLE THROUGH THE FORSTAY FITTING AND TIE A
:: LOOP OF LINE THAT IS BIG ENOUGH TO DROP OVER THE BOW
:: THEN HOOK UP TO THAT.

:: AS FOR FLUTTER IT USALY COMES FROM THE BOTOM TIP OF THE
:: BOARD HOW WIDE IS YOUR TRAILING EDGE AND IS IT ROUNDED
:: AND HAVE A SHARP CONNER?

:: :: What is the cause and how can I remedy this condition?
