My Boat Cover

Thought I would post a pic of my boat cover.

Forumers have often asked about boat covers and generally the conversation revolves around PVC type covers that fit around the boat.

This isn't always recommended in warm climates as it retains moisture and warms the air making it a breeding ground for mildew.

This cover was made from slotted angle and battons with a tarp on the roof.

It is also on castors so when I steer the boat to one side of the drive the cover goes with it.

It also provides anti theft as well as other anti theft devices in the area.

It looks untidy I know, and was only going to be temporary, and has been for two years.

Love it, ideal for your needs, and moving with the boat is genius.

But unfortunately the rain comes down sideways here in the UK, accompanied by wind, so not only would the boat get wet, it would also be halfway down the road before you know it.

Thanks Nasher

Rain buckets down in Perth and we have very strong South Westerly winds.

The wind and rain comes in the direction of the fence that is parked up against.
and the neighbour's carport is just on the other side of the fence as well, which also protects it.

The roof wouldn't handle snow.
