Strap Identification

Weird topic, no? I bought a used cataraft sometime back. It came with a couple extra straps. Each is about 4' long. A figure-8 type buckle (not cam buckle) is at one end, designed for making a semi-fixed loop of the strap. The other end has a 2.5" steel ring sewn in. Any idea what these are intended for? Much thanks.

I believe that this would be an oar tether. The figure 8 end is wrapped around your frame. The oar blade is taken off and the oar put through the ring, then reattach the oar. My best guess-
