PT Watercraft offers kits for new and unique boat designs that are efficient, functional, modern & attractive.


Carbon Eye-straps:

These light weight, low profile eye-straps are glued on to avoid fasteners.

These are especially useful in places where a tie point is needed in an area that lacks thick enough material to screw into and where through bolts are not an option.

These can be varnished after installation to give them their high shine and classic carbon look.

Eye-straps easily fit 1/4” lines or bungee.

Installation is easy and the result can be incredibly strong. Installation instructions provided with purchase.

A. Single (for easily holding two 1/4” lines)                 Overall Length 2”


Price: $9.50  individual singles,

$49.00 singles 6 pack.

(Previously available doubles are being phased out.)

Shipping: $6.00 USA ; Priority Mail unless otherwise specified. $20 & $24 for Canada/Mexico  & other countries respectively. (we can quote for First Class International which is usually a little less but generally does not have Intl. tracking)
