P.S. They mount directly to the trailer with a single bolt, extend to 43" and have a rating of 5K per set..
Thats exactly what I have on my trailer, and they work excellent. If you dont have straps, and want some, buy these from Chris, they are very quick and easy to use.

I use four 5K lb. yellow ratchet straps and the winch. One strap on each transom eye, two on the bow eye and the 5K lb. which strap on the bow eye.
