The BoatBuckle G2 Retractable Ratcheting Bow Tie-Down Strap # IMF14220 has a working load limit of 833-lbs. In your application on your 3800-lb Bayliner outboard this is sufficient for the bow so long as you use other tie-downs on the remaining portions of the boat, the gunwales and transom, to secure those areas. You can use one strap like # IMF17636 across the gunwales and # IMF08893 at the transom.

Tie-down straps should always be used so that their working load limit (WLL) is never exceeded. This is 1/3 of their breaking strength rating.
