    When cinched down, the boat and trailer become one and bounce together.

    300#? Thatís itís??? Weíve had 3-4 adults standing on ours at once at around 600# at least. At the dealer we had enough people on the platform to cause the tongue jack to bounce

    I swear I read it somewhere......I could be wrong, but my point is the platform can handle tie downs.

    I tow with them every time. Don't go full HAM on them, but it'll keep the bout out of the bed of the truck in the case of an emergency!

    My dealer said about the same thing. I laughed and told them to get the straps for me anyway. They never leave a 5 mile distance from the marina, I town 100+ miles each way every weekend!

    That truck must have some serious f'g brakes and the trailer bunks must be made of teflon or HDPE.

    I plan to get the strainer/flush kit as well. I should have just added it on the build. Is yours the same one they use or did you use another companies strainer?
    Home stretch!

    No I opted for the factory installed unit, and it is super easy to use. The standard sliding bench seat is awesome just to be able to get easy access to the strainer and vdrive.

    What ceramic did you use? I am applying IGL Marine as soon as weather is 60f+

    Fully polished with Rupes UHS and carpro Essence and ready for Ceramic

    Appreciate it! Had a local shop do it and they used a 2-3 stage polish and I believe Carbrite 9H ceramic.

    I wondered the same thing but like Hack said, when you take the tour you see that everything screwed into the hull has full, self-healing backers. Anchors are backed for tower, cleats, handles, tracking fins, transom platform mounts, etc. Not even Nautique can say that, there is a rebuild video floating around where it shows the tower anchors on a 210 are just through-bolted.

    I also think the transom straps are more of a stability thing than an actual anchor. My guess is they just serve to keep the stern centered. If you think about it it seems like the vast majority of the boaboats weight will always be resting on the bunks, something has to really be going wrong (ie boat is lifting off the trailer) for a substantial amount of weight to be put on the straps. At the end of the day, my dealer installed the straps and told me where to mount them, if something goes wrong in normal use it will be on them I guess.
