Transom Tie Down Straps & Gen 2 Tabs

Is anyone else having issues with your transom straps resting against the Gen 2 Tabs?

What's straps are y'all using if you didn't get the factory ones?

I have never used them. That boat is so heavy, it will not go anywhere.

No offense, but I would never drive around without the straps on. It's a $100k boat and with boat buckles we are literally talking about 30 seconds worth if time. Not good advice if you ask me.

To each his own. This has just been my experience. I'm not saying something can't happen in a crash. Just under normal conditions the boat will not move.

I have always used them, but now with the Gen 2 tabs the place to hook on the trailer should really be moved further down on the trailer or the hooks on the boat moved further in.

I also never used the tie down straps, and I towed the boat a few thousand miles. to each his own.
