Replacing boat's winch strap??

10 posts in this topic

I noticed that my winch strap for cranking the boat on to the trailer is starting to fray and tear a bit. I don't need any extra excitement in my life. I see that you can pick one up for $15 or $20. Could a guy pick one up at FleetFarm or Gander? Is there any trick to putting on the new one? I am somewhere between a total klutz and somewhat capable. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks Sam

Esox is right, it is very simple anyone can do it. I changed one this spring and you just need to put the new one on the exact opposite way you told the old one off. Should be 1 bolt to take off and that's it.

just make sure you buy the right length of strap. I changed one this summer and the wrong length was in the spot were the short one was suppose to be at Fleet Farm. I managed to get it to work though.

Just about anywhere that sells them, i.e. Cabelas, etc. They should look/feel like the seatbelts in your vehicle.

If just a few feet towards the hook are damaged you could just cut off the damaged section and get the hook re- sewn,

i had the same problem and this is how i fixed mine.

brought it to a red wing shoe guy he did it for a couple bucks.

because ther is extra strap, why not cut off the end and have resewed? it does work well because most of the strap is covered and in good shape.

I bought a replacement from a marine store on London Road in Duluth for $15. It's the big, heavy yellow tow strap material, and I really like it. The one it replaced had seen better days, top to bottom...

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.
