His boat, he can use chains if he wants.

I see alot of cruisers being hauled on flatbed trailers that are strapped over the top.

I guess at least he has straps on it.
Check out the 1/4" U bolts he drilled through the trailer beam. Thats good to attach
a fat guy's suspenders.

for starters its mark not francis.Marc from Bam and Jimmy Gaffrig were taking Marcs 36 cig. to fla. Make a long story short Jimmy fell asleep the truck and boat went of the road and started to roll the 9 foot 6 beam on the boat stopped it from going over.Needless to say if the straps failled it would have been catastrophic....the boat and truck had all left wheels off ground.the boat and truck were on the right weels only.the deck of the boat supported the rig.......got the pic.........
