Stainless Steel Transom Strap Recommendation for Boat Trailer


Those are all well and good for fresh water but what about saltwater fishermen? 1. Can the whole buckle be made of stainless steel for saltwater usage? 2. Or can the G2 buckle be made with a quick release from the trailer to be removed prior to launching a boat going into saltwater?


Expert Reply:

For a stainless steel version of the part # IMF08893 that you referenced that would do better in saltwater applications you would want the part # IMF14256 instead.

Part # IMF14256, uses a stainless steel body that resists rust and corrosion. The S-hooks are a vinyl-coated steel like the hooks on the system you referenced, for protection of the boat finish. These do come with the mounting hardware. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out.
