I regularly have a foul weather strop. Usually on a friday night when I look at the weather forecast.

It is a feature of the older fltacrafts and sea riders I think they are good things.

Your opinion

I take it you mean a stuffing strap as they are also known. Simply a webbing/ratchet strap coming form the front winching eye over the tubes and down to a strong point on the decks - will stop the tubes coming loose in a stuff.

A lot depends on the boat - I had been thinking of one but I went for the raised foredeck/sunbed so the tubes are supported over a much bigger area anyway.
