Default Question About Boat Hoist Slings..

The marina I keep my boat at uses a hoist system for us to splash and recover our boats so we dont have to dunk our trailers in salt all the time.

My straps are looking pretty old at this point and i wanted to buy some new ones

I use two. One for the bow, one for the transom. The transom strap has a huge metal loop on one end, and then two straps with hooks that clip onto the transom D loops.

I can't find the rear strap in a quick google/amazon search.

Do you guys know what that's called, and, what are some of the more reputable/trustworthy places to get these straps from?

My boat weighs about 8,000 pounds ready to fish.

Thanks in advance.

I can't believe the bow pulpit has enough strength to lift the boat. No way would I do that.

I think the photo is a bit deceiving; it's not lifting from the pulpit; the strap is alongside either side of the pulpit and lifting from the bow eye. I think.
