After 7 years with ratchet straps on the same boat and no damage and no boat jumping up and down and not having a daytime evening problem and not loosing the boat off the trailer and not abrading the hypalon, I can only conclude; it aint what you do, it's the way that you do it.

probably more like clean air, JW!

Airbourne pollution means that you get dust and grit on the straps, it rubs between the strap and tube...

Mmmm, maybe but rubbing only occurs where the surfaces move differently to each other.

You do need, at least, the common sense not to put the ratchet against the tube. Lower or higher will do.

I'm trying to refrain from insulting folk! But it's very tempting.

Very sensible and the only way to do it if you want to keep rib and trailer together. Know a bloke who went over a pot hole at low speed, no rear strap-down, rib+40hp jumped off and got dragged along by the bow clip, nasty mess of the gel coat! At the end of the day use what you feel safest with, as long as your method cannot be used against you should the worst happen.

You could always insert holes through the hull exactly where the rollers are once the boat is fully up on the trailer. The boat will then "click" into position on the trailer and will not move anywhere !!!

No problem if you've got a RIBcraft... just remove the dome headed nut from the underside of the hull that holds the A-frame on, and re-attach once aligned with the Jackeen patented roller!!

What an insult you nobbah....after 18 years on the road I would only ever use Gaffa tape and Belden cable.

For what it's worth I like your method but my problem has never been keeping the boat on the road trailer. it's keeping the trailer on the road
