Re: Ratchet straps

Minne, all ratchet straps aren't created equally. I bought a set of lightweight ones at Home Depot last year for my bimini and they didn't make it through the season (ratchets broke).

I'd think the expensive part is the stainless steel ratchets and you should be able to buy a better quality set at Home Depot and use the straps.

The sail, the play of its pulse so like our own lives: so thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective." - Henry David Thoreau
