Nylon Lifting Slings
Deluxe & Economy Boat Slings & Boat Lifting Straps
Boat lift straps, also called boat hoist slings, are designed to lift boats safely and securely.
Boat straps are typically made of polyester because of its low stretch value (3% at working load limit; maintains 100% of working load limit when wet). Nylon boat slings are also available upon request, but nylon’s higher stretch value (6-8% at working load limit; loss of 15% of working load limit when wet) make them a less popular option. Polyester is also superior to nylon in its ability to reduce hull markings and is resistant to acids used to clean the boat's hulls. However, polyester straps should not be used near caustic materials.
