Finding replacement boat cover

Post by Fire1386 » 11 Apr 2017, 17:00

Jethro, I haven't forgotten about your requests for pics. Had family in hospital and just now getting back to working on it. I made a PVC frame to sit on the seat poles of the tracker seats and I am just playing with the height of it to get to where it fits very well. I have no complaints about the cover itself. Right after I put it on, the next day I was on duty and when I got off about 2 inches of snow was sitting on it with no issues. It has rained here several times hard and no issues with the cover itself. Removed the cover today and carpet dry all over. Today I finally got to work on it a bit after getting back and it is close, but it appears the center of the PVC rack will need to be and inch or so higher than the ends to truly fit the cover well. Thursday when I get back home off duty I will try raising the middle up higher and see if that does the trick. Right now I have ropes running from one side to the other and around the PVC frame supporting the cover from sagging in an area in the middle. I would prefer not to have to use the ropes at all and once I get the frame height set hopefully won't have to use the ropes.

Fire1386-

I look forward to the pictures. In the meantime please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

Jethro, sorry for the delay. Here is one pic of boat cover. I am very pleased with the quality of the cover. The material I consider tough, but not super heavy. Have had several very hard rains and water beads and runs off. This material is suppose to stand up to UV well and breaths to let out hot air. Time will tell on this feature. Others on the east coast and Florida that I have talked to like sunbrella material. Straps are plentiful that come with it. The width of the cover compared to my old one was different. Currently playing with a boat cover support system that was provided by BoatCoversandBiminis to see if it would help with slack areas that would pool water. I am playing with the height of it, so I have not shorten the side straps at all yet. I also have a support system that I made from PVC that fits over my seat poles and along with rope had created a system that worked well but was time consuming setting up. The manufacturer system is a little quicker and hopefully after finding the correct height and setting it up a few times will even get quicker. BoatCoversandBiminis has really given me superb support, especially in these days when custom support seems to be non-existent. Wouldn't hesitate to deal with them again, but hopefully it won't be for a few years when this cover needs replaced.....:)

If I take other pics when I get it set the best way I like, I will post them on. Will try and get some out away from the houses that will provide a much better view than the above.

Yes, I thank you as well! Looks like that will be a good cover, I will be purchasing one after I get my motor up to snuff.

Hi Guys

Anyone got any experience with Oceansouth Boat covers? I live in Sydney Australia and the UV we get here is fairly harsh.

Have heard good things about Oceansouth, and they seems to have a range of colours for open tinnies which is good. But don;t want to buy another rubbish one. My last one only lasted one season. These are the ones I am looking at: https://www.theboatwarehouse.com.au/cat ... overs.html

Feedback appreciated.

Cheers.
