Boat Cover

6 posts in this topic

Bought a used Crestliner FishHawk1750 this spring. I got a cover in the deal and am looking for some storage tips. The cover has 2 "ports" that look like they are for some kind of mast or support and rubber bungee type straps for tie down. I got no hardware with the cover and need some idea of the support system some use and the tie down method.

There should be a couple poles that telescope. Maybe hiding in a storage compartment.

Try some PVC and make your own. Cheap and strong and dont rust or breakdown in the weather.

Unless you have all the O.E. parts that came with the cover, there really is no right or wrong way to tie it down. Whatever works for you and gets the job done. Do the straps have hooks in the end and will they reach the trailer? If not, plain old bungie cords will work. Just make sure to use the ones with the plastic hooks and not the metal. You wouldn't believe how many paint and gelcoat jobs we get here at the shop from metal bungie cord hook damage.

Thanks for the help! The PVC idea sounds like a winner. I did check and found no poles with the unit. The cover has rubber cords attached for tie down but no hooks or clips. I'll give the bungee cord idea a look.
As usual this site has given me direction!!!

if you are storing it outside, iv'e found that a poly tarp over the canvas helps save the canvas from sun and water damage over the winter.clothes line rope is cheap and works good for tie down for storage

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
