Boat Buckles

Anyone have experience with this product? I'm referring to the straps that fix onto your trailer (no the kicker motor strap). Thinking about putting them on my trailer, just wondering if they'll last or not.

Love them. Very ingenious. They have been on my boats since the late 90's.

Dude, they are the bomb!!!! love em.. so much faster than having to strap... and its really hard to loose something that is attached.. if you know what I mean!

My new boat has them and Deitz is correct....never have to fumble with putting them in the truck and taking them out everytime you load and unload....they are always right there. Only used them once so I can't testify on the durability yet, but definitely convenient.

Sweet! Thanks fellers. Consider them as good as on my trailer.

They rock, I started using them 2 years ago, I wish I would have started sooner than that.

Hey Guys, one quick follow up question- will I need to drill a hole(s) on my trailer or can they be put on with a U bolt of some sort?

Mine are bolted through the trailer, 1 bolt each.

Depends on the exact trailer layout. I have been lucky and have been able to bolt them right into the same holes where the straps used to attach to.

      Hit the secret beach on the sippi for a couple hours today with some crawlers. wind was pretty crazy. smally bit first then a sucker. then caught 4 eyes and decided to leave. a young guy came down while I was fishing and was casting a spinnerbait and I asked him what he was after. he said bass so I let him know that it is illegal to target them and eyes till next month and that the game warden watches people in the area quite often. He said he had no idea he could not fish for them, thanked me and said he wont cast anymore. nice young guy. I bet he will be down again with some crawlers.

      I've seen a lot of people dragging raps for "crappies" before the opener

      Go down to MG and they will steer you in the right direction.  I know that  different release is used for braid.

      Sorry if I was didn't make myself clear.   What I meant was can  a place like the landing make a living from the people who come to the higher end resorts and want to go out to eat?     Clearly Ludlow's has a target market and does very well with it.  Whether that same target market can sustain the landing is another question.   Seems like maybe not...     I still wonder why they don't put the menu online.... In this day and age,  I am used to checking out a place online before walking in the door.
