Women In Fishing | Chelsey Gaudet

Women In Fishing | Chelsey Gaudet

Chelsey Gaudet is from Prince Edward Island and has been working in the fishing industry for 11 years. Chelsey absolutely loves her work and wouldn’t change her path for everything in the world. She works both the Spring and Fall season and off-season times are sad for Chelsey simply because she knows she has to wait for the next season to come around.

Spartan Marine sat down with Chelsey and asked her some questions about her experience in the fishing industry, and this is what she shared with us…

How long have you been in the fishing industry?

11 years – 20 total seasons, 10 in the fall and 10 in the spring.

How did you get started in the fishing industry?

My family is all into fishing and I’ve loved it my whole life!

What’s your favorite part about working in the fishing industry?

My favorite part is being with my family in a place where I love. I’ve always loved the water and being on the water has always taken all of my stress away. I love the sunrises and seeing everything out on the water.

Have you experienced any roadblocks in the industry because you’re a woman? How did you overcome those struggles?

The only struggles I have faced working in the fishing industry is getting saltwater boil on my face – talk about painful!

Can you share your greatest achievement or fondest memory since working in the fishing industry?

I love being my own boss and making my own money. Seeing lots of lobster makes my day and fishing with my father and boyfriend makes it so much better!

What would you tell a young woman wanting to get into the fishing industry? Do you have any advice?

Do it! If you’re a tough woman, you’ll love it! You do need to be tough for this job.


A big thank you goes out to Chelsey for taking some time to share her story with Spartan Marine. It’s so great to learn more about the customers we have the pleasure to serve across Atlantic Canada. Thanks Chelsey!

Types of Load Binders & Choosing the Best for the Job!

Types of Load Binders & Choosing the Best for the Job!

There are two general types of load binders – ratchet binders and lever binders, defined by their method of tightening. Though the majority of commonly used load binders will fall in one of these two categories, they are available in a range of styles, load ratings, and sizes to match the different types of chain used within the transportation industry.

If you’re a part of the transportation industry you’re likely pretty familiar with load binders, also known as chain binders. Load binders are an essential piece of equipment used to anchor loads for transport by applying tension to the chains that tie-down your cargo. Of all tie-down methods, chain and load binders have the most muscle to handle the toughest tie-down jobs – made for big & heavy loads.

A Closer Look at the Different Types of Load Binders 

Lever types and ratchet type load binders work similarly and usually are chosen based on the personal preference of the user. As with any type of load securement gear, safe practices need to be followed. Let’s take a closer look at these two categories of load binders with some pros and cons so that you can confidently make the choice of which type of load binder will work best for you.

Lever Type of Load Binders

A lever type of load binder (also known as lever chain or snap binders) is made up of a simple machine, a lever, with a tension hook on each end. The lever is used to increase the force applied to a tie-down. The lever is hinged and takes up the slack by pulling on one end of the tension hook and will lock itself after a 180-degree rotation of the lever around the hinge. They require a relatively high manual force to be applied by the person installing the binder in order for it to tighten and secure the chain. While they take more manual force, they are typically quicker and simpler to install because of their straight forward design and application with less moving parts.

Lever load binder chart

Lever Load Binders Pros and Cons 

Pros

  • Quicker and simpler to operate
  • More compact
  • Generally less expensive

Cons

  • Requires more manual strength
  • The threat of “kickback” from the lever if proper care is not taken
  • More likely to break in the handle where kinetic energy is held

Ratchet Type of Load Binders 

A ratchet type of load binder (also known as ratchet chain) uses two types of simple machines and has two tension hooks on each end and handle. The handle again serves as a lever plus there is the screw thread. Having both simple machines can multiply the force manually applied to the tie-down assembly.

When using a ratchet binder, the lever and screw work together and increase the force manually applied to the tie-down assembly. The result is that it takes much less pulling force on the handle to apply tension than you would need with a lever binder. Ratchets also allow for slower, steadier loading and unloading of forces. This reduces any undue stress or strain on your body. Since ratchet binders are designed with a gear, handle, pawl, and end fittings, they will not store up as much energy in the handle as a lever binder will. Another advantage of ratchet binders is that take-up is safer. The take-up distance of a ratchet binder is typically eight to ten inches – twice that of a lever binder. While take-up with a ratchet binder may take a few extra minutes, it is more controlled and ultimately a safer process.

Ratchet Load Binders Pros and Cons 

Pros

  • Less manual force to operate
  • Safer to operate – Not as much energy is stored in the handle, therefore will not “kickback”.
  • Higher mechanical advantage
  • Easier to adjust in finer increments

Cons

  • Generally more expensive
  • Less compact
  • Harder to operate
  • Takes more time to set up

Selecting the Proper Load Binder 

Once you’ve made the choice on what type of load binder you prefer, it’s time to ensure you’re using the correct load binder within that category. Making this choice has less to do with the load binder itself and more to do with the type of chain you are using alongside it, and the weight of your cargo. Chains and load binders work together as a team, so you have to make sure they are compatible with each other.

Capacity is the most important considerations when you’re choosing your chain and load binder team. The load being tied down must not exceed the combined WLL (working load limit) of all the chains being used. For example, if your cargo weighs 4,000 lbs and you will use 4 chains, each chain must have a WLL of at least 1,000 lbs. Four chains of 1,000 lbs WLL each will equal 4,000 lbs total, enough capacity to secure a 4,000 lb load. Each binder must also have a WLL of at least 1,000 lbs. A good rule to follow is to always use binders that have an equal or greater capacity than the chains they will tighten.

Always follow safe work practices and take precautions in the use of binders. Particular attention is called to section 2.1.3 of the Driver’s Handbook on Cargo Securement by the Canadian Council of Motor Transportation Administrators.

Ask the Experts | How to Store Ratchet Straps?

Any piece of equipment is only as good as you treat it, and how you choose to store your ratchet straps is a very important aspect of their upkeep. Are you reading this right now and realizing your ratchet straps are sitting in their semi-permanent home in the messy heap somewhere in your garage? Then this blog is for you!

In the transportation industry, you have to be able to trust your equipment and one of the most popular methods for securing cargo, especially when it comes to shipping, is using ratchet straps – also known as lasing straps or tie-downs. Ratchet straps are the hammer of the transporters toolbox – with applications ranging wide from professional use to everyday common use. You may not realize it, but these simple straps are a large and important component in material handling. Read on to learn how to get the most life out of your ratchet straps.

How to Store Ratchet Straps

The working life of your equipment is affected by more than just how you use it – storing it incorrectly is one of the leading causes of damage. Ratchet straps that are stored improperly will need to be retired must faster and you may face issues such as mold, mildew, color fading, burns, tears, or loose tie down webbing that may damage the strength of your ratchet straps.

There are three main things you want to avoid when storing ratchet straps:

Moisture

Storing ratchet straps is a place where they are exposed to moisture can cause it to mold and mildew. Mold can extremely weaken the strength of the webbing and the polyester can actually be destroyed, even in heavy-duty straps. This is a problem many people run into when choosing to store their ratchet straps in the back of their truck. This is also something to be aware of when using the straps in the rain – always ensure they are able to dry before putting them away.

Direct Sunlight

Ratchet straps should always be stored in a dark, dry place away from direct sunlight. When exposed to harmful UV rays, they can get sun damaged – you’ll notice this by seeing the color of the strap fade.

Friction & Heat

Exposer to heat, such as the sun, fire, or other heat sources can cause weakening issues. This can also occur if the straps rub against a sharp edge or other objects while in use. If you notice any burn marks in your straps, they must immediately be placed out of service.

Ratchet Strap Storage Organization

Keeping your ratchet straps stored in an organized way is not only good for equipment upkeep but will also save you the headache of untangling your ratchet straps every time you need them. Here is the three-step guide on how to properly store and organize your ratchet straps.

Step One – Planning How to Store Your Ratchet Straps

The first and most important step is planning ahead. You need to have a location in mind that you plan to store your ratchet straps. This location needs to be in a dark and dry area away from the sun, as well as away from all sources of moisture. If you don’t have access to a place that fits these criteria we recommend using a ratchet strap duffle bag or a weatherproof bag for storage.

Step Two – Inspecting Your Ratchet Straps

Ratchet straps must be regularly inspected to ensure they are not damaged, and before and after storing them is a great time to do this. Even “minor” damage can drastically reduce the strap’s capacity and increase the chance of failure during use.

The entire ratchet strap assembly must be inspected before each use and removed from service if any of the following are detected:

  • If the identification tag is missing or illegible
  • Holes, tears, cuts, snags, or embedded materials
  • Broken or worn stitches in the load-bearing splices
  • Knots in any part of the webbing
  • Acid or alkali burns
  • Melting, charring, or weld splatters on any part of the webbing
  • Excessive abrasive wear or crushed webbing
  • Signs of ultraviolet (UV) light degradation
  • Distortion, excessive pitting, corrosion, or other damage to buckles or end fittings
  • Any conditions which cause doubt as to the strength of the ratchet strap

Step Three – Rolling Your Ratchet Straps

The best way to keep your ratchet straps stored in an organized way is by rolling them up. To do this, start out by threading the strap’s end through the space where the strap attaches to the buckle. Pull about five to fifteen inches of the strap through (depending on the length of the ratchet strap) and simply roll the strap tightly. Most ratchet strap users will use rubber bands or large socks to keep ratchet straps separated – find what works for you!

It’s as easy as that! If this technique of rolling your ratchet trap doesn’t work for you or the type of straps you use, feel free to change it up! Your ratchet strap roll doesn’t need to be perfect, it just needs to serve the purpose of keeping your straps contained, untangled, and stop them from rubbing up against themselves or each other and causing friction damage.
