The trim looked better when we left the site. Guess I could have loaded the stern a little heavier. This pic was taken holding the camera over my shoulder and hoping for the best.

We used the Bowline method tied behind the seat so it would not slide and the knot under the keel approx 6" back from where the curve of the bow starts.
We towed behind 14ft Aluminum boats w/ 15hp at 1/2 - 3/4 speed.
Usually 2nd person held rope and adjusted length so that the bow was just behind the motor vee wave.
Must be able to release canoe quickly if have trouble.
Happy paddling.
