Snap on boat cover N Twin Cities

7 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

I have a Lund 1800 Fisherman that I'd like to get a snap down cover for trailering. The cover that I received with the boat is a tie down. Well constructed for the most part the design doesn't work on the road. You've all seen the big balloon rolling down the highway. That's me no matter how tight I tie it down. All the flapping will tear the cover apart no matter what I do.

I'd like to get something more aerodynamic. I live in the area of 35E and 694 so if you have any recommendations in this area it would be great.

Thanks for your help.

Just got my 16ft done by north country canvas. Two day turnaround. He did an awesome job and it cost $500.

I also highly recommend North Country Canvas. Great service. Great product. Extremely custum fit around Terrova on bow, and Vantage in back. Shortly after, he was able to easily modify it slightly for a T8 addition. All that and it still snaps on with the WhiteCaps on.

I'm going on summer number 3 on current one, looks like new. My fathers is going on year 6, and looks great also. Not one issue with canvas, snaps or seems.

I sold my previous boat that had a North County snap on because of it, according to the buyer. He said he was so impressed with how the pix looked, and how good it looked in person, as well as how well the boat looked inside.

    • They are drumming like crazy now. In fact, I even hear them at night. My wife said when she was a teenager growing up in rural Wisconsin, she always thought that drumming sound was the nearby powerstation.    
    • Lilac blooms are here, just haven't opened. Hearing some reports of good finds in the Houston and Lewiston areas of MN. I checked some new public areas today on the MN side. Could be decent later but too cold and wet right now. Will check some early season spots tomorrow but won't hope for much with the cold weather.
    • Nice!  Must have seemed forever waiting.
    • 6 months later and he is home
    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
