I needed something a bit specific to tie-down my new boat.

Standard 1 piece long 5omm 5tonne straps had the strap going over gimbal housing, did not like that idea.
I wanted 2 vertical short straps .... but the 50mm ones the ratchet was too wide and fouled on the swim platform support.
25mm straps would work but not heavy enough rating.

I tried 38mm straps ... but the fixed (leading potion of strap was 300mm, and that ended up with ratchet right on edge of the transom to hull corner - so no good.

Found a manufacturer who would make me 38mm 2-tonne straps but with only 200mm leading strap (to hook) .... thought I was going to get stung on custom manufacture cost ....... not so £4.95 per strap .... the standard length ones were £5.99 !!!
Not only that they made them delivered to my door in 48 Hrs.

So if you need ratchet straps, standard or custom ...... try ARINSDALE : http://www.arinsdale.com/products.aspx?Categories=1
