It's Thanksgiving week here in the USA. Holiday greetings to all my fellow cruisers out there.
The guy that supplied our tender also supplied ratcheting tie down straps for it. And these ratchets are wretched! I always feel like they are going to tear my hands up when I'm trying to use them, especially loosening them.
Welcome to Mahalo, you strapping beauties (on the right). That's how to do it! There are heavy plastic where you need to touch the units. Nice wide grips. Look at those pathetic ones on the left. I bet in an emergency I couldn't even get them loose!
I got the carabiner version, because why not? Even if they got a little loose they still cannot fall off. Plus they will stay attached to Mahalo when the tender is in the water. I trimmed off some extra material, now I'm set! American made to boot!
