i agree, when the wind gets up those bricks can weigh very little but do a lot of damage, perhaps tying the tarp to the trailer as well might be prudent

I believe Mollers suffers a lot from wind too!

Get a cheap pack of bungies.

Chop them in half

Chuck the elastic but keep the hooks

Go to local chandler

Buy 6 or 8 1m lengths of 1cm dia bungie and put the bungies in to the hooks and put a stopper knot on the end

Hook the bungie round the trailer or whatever your normally gonna tie it to.

Then go from there up to the nearest eye on your cover and then zip tie the tail of the bungie at the appropriate length.

You can then either leave it as it is or put some whipping twine around it.

Easy, cheap, quick and simple!

Chris

Hi
If you can wait till the weekend I have a new packet on the boat and it has the telphone number etc where you can buy them from, I got these from the boat show 3.50 for a pack of 4. Hold down my boat cover a treat and are really quick and easy to use.

Thank you, I'm very pleased with it to, have just made a cover for it out of Re-inforced banner PVC fabric, so will put some pics of it too when & if I manage to find time to heat weld it this week.

Have they got a website, and do they do longer ones?

They look like something made by a company called clamcleats in welwyn garden city. They may have invented them and the item may even be a clamcleat! Used on trailers if my memory serves me...

Good luck
