boat cover

Recommended Posts

I-Boats has a lot of very good cover sales going on now.

As for me, I'm a firm believer in tarps.

If you really want it done right get an acrylic cover custom fitted to your boat by John Mann of Sodus Bay Canvas at Sodus Point.  Keep it waterproofed by using the outdoor version Scotchguard periodically. Place an extendable pole inside the boat if stored outside so snow will slide off it and then cover it with a tarp secured by bungi cords.  It will last many years and keep your boat in perfect shape. Tarps by themselves are OK for temporary situations but over winter high wind can rip them and/or rip the grommets out of them in high wind combined with adverse weather exposing your boat interior. It is worth spending money at the outset not having to worry and protecting your substantial investment.

Many years ago I was given a black PVC tarp that is used to cover tractor trailer loads. Very heavy. Build a 2x4 frame over the 18 ft boat that looks like a tent. Tie the tarp down with many bungee cords. Never had a problem for the last 15 years doing this except for mice and red squirrels. Been using mothballs in the boat lately and that appears to be working on the rodents. The truck tarp probably has 20 more years in it.
