Hi, I recently purchased a Zodiac wooden floor sib.. I am currently getting it ready for summer. I want to find some tie down straps and brackets to hold battery and petrol tank in place, but so far have no luck ,, Is there anything anyone can recommend?

Here in Oz we can get these type of straps. There are various brands and varying qualities. I use this type of strap for most of my tie downs.

Hi.
Thanks for reply and photo. I found similar straps for sale in USA. Made by a company called boatbuckle These straps come with brackets that are screwed to the floor and would be ideal for what I need. strap kit sell for around $12 US but shipping is $62 US.

I built a stainless part that slides into the track for the starboard side, but you can see the little stainless loop on the other side of my fuel tank. For straps I just use cheap ones, and plan to replace them every few years (Going on year 4). Stainless ones would be nice, but I had the steel one (FREE), and I could care less how my working boat looks. I prefer ratcheting since it can get the fuel tank just a little tighter than a regular tie down strap.
