    Ever seen a boat on trailer (less transom straps) hit an unexpected speed bump or curb? Boat and trailer go up, trailer comes down, boat comes down a little off center. Driver about shits his pants. I was behind a guy in a big department store parking lot headed toward the gas pumps and watched this take place in front of me with about a 20ft Bayliner when they cut the corner and hopped a curb. Boat jumped over a good 6-8".

    That was on a single axle. I'm guessing it may have been a little different with a tandem.
    My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely.

    I always tow with transom straps that are connected to the boat and not the swim platform. That is the absolute best/safest way to go. Just my .02

    I opted out of transom tie down straps on my build as well, but this thread has motivated me...

    Go to the hardware store and buy different bolts and nylock nuts.

    The locking hardware that comes with these are defective.

    They thread about 3 turns and I broke the bolt trying for the 4th turn.


    BoatBuckle G2 Stainless Steel Retractable Transom Tie-Down (Black), 1 Pair https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001GJ35VU..._GayZCbYBA8658

    These are the ones I got, but reading the reviews it sounds like the locking hardware has the same issues for both Fulton and boat buckle.

    Probably made by same company.

    I have the Boat Buckles G2 straps. The stainless steel hardware isn't defective, but rather will begin galling if you install the bolt and nut too fast. This is common with SS fasteners. The key is to go slow on the install and use a lubricant to help prevent galling. https://www.boltdepot.com/fastener-i...d-galling.aspx

    Installed with hand tool, canít go any slower.

    Stainless hardware from ACE with nylock nut was perfect.
