Re: Ratchet straps

What is wrong with just replacing the strap? And why do you have to leave it at the canvass shop? The canvass guy just needs to know the width and length of the strap and how long to make the loop.

Edit: I think the strap should be a polyester as opposed to nylon because of UV deterioration. Sew a loop on one end. Attach a one end of a lanyard to the ratchet and
the other end to the boat.
