Last summer my buddy had a set of retracting ratchet tie downs mounted on his trailer. They came with it and I thought they were pretty slick.
No fiddling with transom straps, nothing to take on and off. Just pull out the strap, attach to your tie down point, and ratchet.
When you put the boat into the water , nothing to take off, just loosen, and it retracts into it's own housing.
I sprung the 60 bucks and picked up a set of the cargobuckle G3 last night and was wondering who else are running these slick gizmos.
Well worth the $60 imo!
