    Boat Buckle tiedowns

    anyone try these yet for a ski?? I have them for my jetboat and love 'em....little pricey, but no more having to "find the tie-down" bs after a day on the water....they just bolt up to trailer....just not sure if the reach is long enough for a pwc hook....

    Yup, except trying to find a place to mount them. I have a set that's about a year old, that I havent used.

    They are horizontal on one trailer, and are too close to the lights on the other. I don't want to drill my galvanized trailer, and will have to make some brackets for the aluminum trailer.

    Just another thing to do, in a long line of things to do.

    I have had them for over a year and they are great. I drilled a hole on the inside rear channel of the trailer and they work and look good on the riton.
    I think I paid 50 for the pair

    I thought about buying them, but they are pretty expense. I thought I read something a long time ago about them rusting because they are not SS, but I'm not sure, I might have made that up.
