Thanks for the input Roger!! Much apprieciated!!
Went to store and looked, they only had a 3500lb in stock and that was $60 or two speed ones for even more $$ but same weights... Went home to play with it... The existing one is a Fulton 1400 / 700 LB, first wrap / subsequent... My thoughts were like yours too Roger, but if original was that small... I plan on stopping into the store tonight and picking up that 3500. I guess since the boat is only 1850lb + gear & fuel it should do. The strap should be able to be moved over - took it off last night, darn its about 20' long - I could hook the boat up behind the trailer.
