If you can give me a working load I can spec you something that would suit you with any end fitting on.....

The only down side is chaf, but the are chaf covers that can be installed over the core material.
Will send you a P.M. butty

Neva fort of you bein posh Kerny, you hide it very well
obviously I ain't posh coz a bit of chain n snap hook works a treat on our rib but agree, you do need something coz if your winch strap snaps then its lots of grazed grp, which is much harder to sort than a grazed knee
