Tired of Snaps to Attach your Mooring Cover?
Mooring Cover – Standard Colors
Mooring & Storage Cover Guide
Upon removal from the package you will find – A Cover, Instructions/Guide & Prop Rods.
Installation – On the console steered models, two holes (one in each side) need to be drilled into the gussets on the lower motor/transom brackets; see reverse side. This is where the stern pull cord clips attach. On the tiller steered models the cover is continuous around the stern of the boat and no modification is needed.
The Prop Rods – How the cover fits your boat will depend on many things and the poles adjust-ability allow for these variances. One rod needs to be 29 ½” long and is to be installed toward the bow and the other rod 34” installed mid-ship. These lengths are a good starting point. The rods snap in place under the cover indicated by square reinforcing patches with snaps sewn in.
The rods fit correctly when the cover is firmly supported with minimal pole movement or sway. Final adjustment is best done once the cover is firmly in place.
Once the cover is fitted and the prop rods are adjusted to where the cover fits comfortably on the boat the snap studs will need to be installed. They are simply screwed into the hull material below the rub-rail indicated by where the 6 snap caps are installed in the cover itself.
We found the cover easiest to install moving from one back corner of the boat then installing forward. Remember to snap the stern/rear clips in the drilled holes in the motor brackets on Console steered boats and to clip the pull chord together opposite the ratcheting pulley. The zippers allow for the canopy poles & brackets to the left and right of the helm seat.
The pull cord holds the cover on the boat. The cover is in place when this cord is below the rub-rail. Pulling the cord tight in the ratcheting pulley secures the cover to the boat. The cover is released by pressing the metal tab in the pulley housing. The ratcheting pulley is installed on the starboard or right side and if necessary can be changed by untying the knots and retying on the opposite side.
The cover is made of very durable water resistant UV protected material and will last for years with little maintenance. For cleaning all that is needed is light soapy water and a rinse. Aftermarket waterproofing products should not be used as they can shorten the life of the product and ruin colorfastness.
The cover is warranted against manufacturer’s defects for one year from date of purchase. Damage from misuse, animals or extreme weather is not covered. It is not designed for use when the boat is trailered at high speeds or long distances. Damage from trailering is considered misuse and is not covered.
