Had same problem. Purchased a roll of nylon strap and used a sewing awl. Cut individual pieces and sewed them to remaining strap. Works great-used several years now.

Sun-rotted straps sewn to boat cover
by: WaterDog

I've got the same problem, and it's occurred to me that it's a mistake to have the straps sewn to the cover--once they break, you're screwed. I will be sewing to the cover (by hand with a Speedy Stitcher) 4" diameter Hypalon (inflatable boat material) patches with stainless steel 1" D-rings attached. I will then either use polyester straps, rope, or bungee cords to secure the attached D-rings to the trailer. There are eight straps, so this will take a while, but I feel it would have been smarter to build the cover this way in the first place.

That should work just great.
Good luck with the projects.

Nylon web loops
by: Anonymous

Hi Tammy,
Since posting I ordered polyester webbing and a awl sewing tool to replace the split loops.

Hopefully this will work. My cover still has integrity.

Thanks for your suggestions!

We use polyester webbing for the boat cover tie down applications and webbing straps here in the shop and we also sell polyester on the website.
Nylon degrades much faster than polyester.
If your local shop doesn't use it, you can purchase it here and have them retrofit your cover with polyester.
Here is the link for the heavy duty polyester webbing we sell.
