Some boats have been found improperly strapped down after rowing/washing.  Help us prevent damages and review the pictures and summary point below:

Boats on the trailer or metal vertical racks:

  • Sling one end (the bow end for boats on the vertical racks)
  • Strap the other end down to the rack or trailer post.  Contact point to the rack post is on the gunwale (see pictures for examples) — not the splash guard or deck, which are more fragile. 

All boats:

  • Do not set boat down with splash guard on the slings
  • Cinch straps so the metal clasp is not in contact with the boat itself
