…. Anyway, put the snap stretchers on my old rotten boat cover, and WOW, it can snap!! I am so thrilled, after spending much time trying to cover my boat after we were out on the lake, and spending time trying to find a solution in expensive new covers (which I cannot afford) and then coming across this product, by the grace of God on the internet! As I told you, they are an answer, and they fit! I am thrilled and thank you for sending the second, replacement for lost, package. I am appreciative of that from you. C L.
Hello: You asked for comments regarding my Landing Loop, reference using it single-handed to dock my 40 foot sailboat.
I have just recently arrived at the boat, and have not yet set sail, but have tried the LL ashore. I did read the user innovation that you suggested, where he affixed a couple of short lengths of split hose to the horns of the LL, to hold the line in place until dropped over a dock cleat. That looks OK, but it seems to me (I have not tried it yet while docking, only while in the slip) that a short piece of masking tape around the line at each horn works just as well. It holds the looped line in place on the horn-ends, and breaks easily when you drop it over the dock cleat. Agreed, it is a bit of a hassle to remove the broken masking tape after each use, but is easy use, and one does not have to monkey around with trying to get the right size hose and split it just right so the line will pull free easily. I will try it in actual docking in the next few weeks, and let you know it the masking tape method works or not.
It looks to me like you have a winner here with your Landing Loop. I like it already, single-handed or with crew, and will recommend it whenever I can.
