Lund Boat Covers

5 posts in this topic

I'm looking for some opinions on what I should do with my cover. I have been told that when I travel I will need to take my bow-mount and the console windshield off in order for the cover to fit properly.
Because I don't want to hassle with doing that I am thinking about altering the cover itself.
I have a concern about adding new seams to the cover and by doing so I will weaken it, making it easier to tear.
1. Should I go thru the hassle and take things off?
2. Should I have it altered?
3. Any recommendations on who could do the altering?

I appreciate any suggestions from my FORUM FRIENDS! Thanks and GOOD FISHING

I would just take the cover off while traveling That is what I do. I don't know why everyone thinks that the boat need to be covered going down the road. The cover flapping around going down the road just weakens the cover. AJ

I would put a quick disconnect mount on the trolling motor. It works great and only takes a couple of minutes to remove or mount the motor.
The windshields also are quickly and easily removed.
Just store them on the floor under the cover.
The cover also will deter those rotten thieves that seem to be everywhere!!

Have a custom cover made. I did not take the Lund cover when I got my boat. I had a custom cover made and it is reinforced in the areas it needs to be, like the windshield, trolling motor and corners. I am very glad I went this route and the price is about the same.ScottS

I just bought a new Lund also and had the same problem. I took my boat to tarps inc. In savage an had them add material to my cover to fit over the trolling motor, windshield, and Kicker. It is warantied so you don't have to worry about it. They also reinforce everything they do. They did a great job on my cover. By brother also had his done about five years ago and he has not had any problems. I would just go ahead and have it done. I payed $115 to have mine done.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
