Yes, Sergey, I thought of the same moficiation but was thinking about someting that would thread wown farther fore and aft than coupling of standard eye bolt. Eye bolt by design seems most efficient for the fabrication and installation cost.

mb

:: There are two extra bolts fore and aft of the two bolts
:: used for the original strap (it is a common design or
:: just my boat?) about a foot apart from each other. I am
:: planning to screw an eye nuts on the bolts and them as
:: the connection point for redundant spectra strap. The
:: idea is that redundant strap will take about 30% of the
:: initial load and will secure the boat if the original
:: strap had failed. Any comments.
