For your Chapparal 223 VR Vortex, I recommend the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Bow Tie-Down Strap - Steel - 43" Long - 833 lbs - Qty 1, # IMF14220. This is also available in a set, the BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Transom Tie-Downs - 2" x 43" - 833 lbs - Qty 2, # IMF08893. These straps will keep your boat secure to your trailer and offer you the automatically retractable strap with a permanent mount. These tie downs have a the SUR-Grip rubber-coated handle that make it easy to grip and control with one hand. They will have a break strength of 2500 lbs each and a working load limit of 833 lbs.

You may be interested in mounting brackets like the Mounting Brackets for BoatBuckle G2 Retractable, Ratcheting Tie-Down Straps - 5,000 lbs - Qty 2, # IMF14254 or the BoatBuckle Protective Boat Pads for 2" Wide Tie-Down Straps - Qty 2, # IMF13180 to safeguard your boat against scratches and your straps from wear by adding this additional protection.
