I have a "foul weather strop" whenever I was looking forward to a days RIBbing and it is too windy/wet/cold/etc

Probably not what you meant though ...

It's when you've been planning trip out on the the RIB for weeks, and the forecast is perfect, plans are made, preparations complete - and then you wake up in the morning, and it's blowing a F8 and it's crap.

You go and kick the cat, the dog, and anything else you can get your foot anywhere near.

Now THAT is a Foul Weather Strop.

I was going to use one but as I have a 7' sunbed/raised deck in the bow there is a lot more area for the tubes to be attached to so not needed.

I have 6 of these all securing 360 around the tubes.
Being ex-mod(the boat that is) its a bit over engineered.
