Now, one can just buy new bungees. That is the West Marine way.
One can buy bungee chord, the hog clips and hog pliers and make your own.
What if the hogs you bought were too small and you don't have the pliers?
|This is how they want you to do it. The hog clip holds the bungee down.|
|But wait, if this can hold sails together...|
|Simple palm whipping ought to do it.|
Total time spent: about ten minutes.
