My son called me to tell me that the strap broke on the boat winch on their pontoon trailer.

(1) - Is this replacable? Just the strap, not the winch... No desire to have to take off old winch and put on a new one if it's not needed. I'll do it if I have to, but I'd prefer to just replace the strap.
(2) Where do you find such a thing?

Thanks.

I just bought one at WalMart for $10, had to go to a couple to find one. Available online as well.

Besides Walmart, Gander Mtn, and Bass Pro have them. One other thing to keep in mind is when you replace the strap make sure to crank on the winch until it gets tight to the boat eye. This will take more turns than you think it will because there is a lot of slack and stretch you are pulling out. After you launch the first time with the new strap use the winch to pull the boat back on the last couple feet. You will pull any remaing slack out of the strap.
