Clam Travel cover fix.

5 posts in this topic

Was getting tired of buying new travel covers for my Voyager because the metal brackets keep cutting holes in them on long trips.

Picked up some heavy fabric from a fabric store in Brooklyn Park and some heavy thread and for about $3.00 in fabric and some choice words from my seamstress (wife)! :angry:

I saved about $65 on a new cover and this one should last me a few years now. :)

 

Not sure why Clam has not added gussets on their covers like this other then the cost would go up. It will be nice not looking in my rear view mirror the whole trip waiting for my cover to rip to shreds on the trailer!

Looks real nice leech! Same with my Eskimo cover those are renforced but there's some small tears starting.

That fabric I bought was a blend of some kind of Poly & Kevlar they said, so it maybe the last thing still around in a few years! :lol:

 Hopefully! I may have to grab some of that don't want to wait to long or it won't be a "cover" any more.

I bought a cheap pool noodle and just cut that up into chunks and then made it slit to slide it on that part to fit the edges. Bought a whole pack of them for a couple bucks and they last pretty long.

    • I would say your results speak for themselves, we often do things that don't make sense or trade short term gain for long term trouble. Nature does things for a reason that we often don't understand, why try to fix what isn't broken?
    • Two charter boats. (11 people) Fishing was very slow last Sunday afternoon (8), but we did really well on Monday morning (43). Due to bad luck drawing cards, neither Mrs Duff or I touched a rod on Sunday. She went 5 for 5 on Monday. That's fishing for ya though. And true fishermen understand that.   Some real nice fish this year, good luck to those that make it out there.      
    • And no, it does not have some sort of virus. They are calling it a phishing site and it is not. It competes with Google adsense so it make sense for Google to be sloppy in their algorithm.
    • Great storytelling with pictures on a portion of your life experiences in the  great outdoors.  Thanks for sharing Len.  
    • Len - This was a very nice article.  I enjoyed your writing style.  Take care.
    • I am going to pick up a box to pattern against what I am shooting now. Here is my question. They are available in both 1 3/4 oz. shot and 1 7/8 oz. shot in 12 gauge. In a 3" 12 gauge #5 shot shell, that comes out to a 21 pellet difference. The velocity for 1 3/4 is 1200 fps, for 1 7/8 is 1080. At 20 yards it would make very little difference, but say at 45 yards would you rather have the extra 21 pellets or the added velocity? I suppose the answer is to buy both and pattern them, but I am curious as to the thoughts of the folks on this board. Thanks
    • I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there. 
    • Thank You for the very interesting and enjoyable morning read
