You don't need it rated for the entire boat weight.

Anyone feel free to refute this.
Pretty much this. Think of it as keeping the trailer attached to the boat rather than the boat attached to the trailer. The most it is handling is the weight of the trailer.

I think my tandem trailer is just a bit over 1000lbs when I got it weighed. I will have to look at the receipt in my binder.
Thank you all. This is very helpful.

Purchasing from AMZ scouts honor!

Thanks everyone. I stand corrected. That is great information and makes sense.

Update:

I got my seat back... Other then the vinyl being 10x better then what originally came in it, its not too far off after cleaning the upholstery up. I also had them install that snap, maybe it won't fly out again!

I had one come loose with the snap. Need to close off the walk thru to the bow.

Got the new tie downs. My trailer does not have anchor points for the straps. Can you coach me on how best to secure the rear of the boat - use the boat anchors or braces for the swim platform, what part of the trailer to hook onto.

what tie downs did you get? Might be easier to get more expensive tie downs that bolt to your trailer. My trailer has welded tabs with holes in them.

txbuzzman, I am able to get behind my teak platform and hook onto the tubing clips. Then I wrap the other side around the frame near the light and hook the strap to itself.

I shocks me that boat trailers are built without tie downs after all the accidents that have happened, not safe no matter how heavy the boat is. I would bolt the above shown straps to trailer, no loose straps to lose that way, its secure and would be pretty easy modification to get done. Will the hook not go up to lifting ring (maybe that is what you meant by boat anchor)? Cannot tell if there is space to run strap behind platform and connect to the rings.....those are best connection point.
