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

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
