Trailer Strap Mod
Got some time to play in the garage today. Kids were at school, wife at work, day off for me and really nothing to do to the ski...
I bolted the strap buckle directly to the frame and set it up to a perfect length for slack. Tried some practice runs with everything in place and it works perfect... Also, used the extra hook and some chain/quick connects I had laying around and put together a bow safety chain. I had a real nice chain setup on my other trailer that a good friend made up for me but I was an idiot and forgot to take it off the trailer when I traded it.
yes, I'm bored...

Keep the mechanisms lubed
I will be interested in how much the road grit bothers it over time. I have some straps with the same style of ratchet and they are getting crotchety despite being cared for

Nice but when you remove the ski and drive around the parking lot where will the straps go then? Just drag
