    I think a lot of folks figure this.......the strap aren't going to do crap in an accident, and the boat isn't going to fall off.

    Figure a slow minor accident rear-end...3-4gs? Now that 10,000lb rated strap and eyelet has to hold 40,000lbs?

    who's boat? (clearwater boat races)

    Referencing this pic of a Nortech at a Gas station seen without straps...

    Maybe NorTech should put big warning stickers on the back of their boats to remind the owners to strap them down PROPERLY!

    This quote from page 1 of that thread should also be re-examined??
    Maybe He just got new carpet installed and it's "lag screwed" to the bunks.

    A accident is one thing but dropping in the street is another
