Karl, perhaps a rolling hitch or better is a Prusik knot. Use fairly light line, say 5 mil which will easily be strong enough. You shouldn't have to drill a hole.

Hi Tony,
Thank You so much for this knot. I knew You would come up with this perfect answer.
I tried it already out and it is really tight.
Greetings from Karl

Hi,
I have accepted the fact that this autumn there will not be a sail trial with my boat any more and therefore I concentrate on small things I want to make perfect over the Winter months like my 2 sheer legs I want to make them out of aluminium telescopic struts which I can stow in one of the bunks and this allows me to raise or lower the mast on the water thinking of going under bridges in Holland. I also want to improve the seals of the cockpit hatches because I got a few litres of water into the bilge when I was on the lake. A fancy hatch lid over the companionway out of marine plywood, fibreglass and epoxy is also on the agenda. I established now the exact weight of trailer and boat which is 158 kg for the trailer and 362 kg for the boat and mast ready to sail with all the appendices like rudder, ballast, electric outboard, sail and lines in the car and yard and boom on the roof carrier. Then it looks like this ( I did not pack the car and roof carrier for the drive to the weigh bridge ) and it tows nicely on the highway at 90 km per hour.

Total weight of trailer and boat 530 kg.

Thanks Michael,
I wish you and your wife lots more nice cruising in The Whitsundays Islands and no more ground contact.
Still looking forward to a nice lunch with my family while you are most probably at a sundowner.
