Hiking straps for 1991

The Catalina design drawings say to allow 6" tail (excess) for adjustment on the 3 slot retainer at the transom. Doesn't seem to specify for the forward straps.

I can tell you that on mine, which I believe still has the original straps, there's about a 12" tail in back and 6" tail on the fronts when pulled reasonably taut.

I use one of those velcro cord organizer strips to keep the excess attached to the strap above it.
