I didn’t receive instructions for my mooring cover.
How do I put on my mooring boat cover?
Please do not allow water to pool on the top of your cover. Additional support tools such as support poles or a support system to prevent water from pooling on top of your cover are highly recommended.
The rope ratchet should be used for mooring. Both the straps and the rope ratchet should be used for trailering. Please do not use the straps while mooring as the straps are not meant to be used while the boat is in the water.
It is not recommended to go above 55 mph while trailering.
- Remove any detachable accessories and tape or cover any sharp edges on your boat that could wear against the cover material.
- The end of the cover without the rope ratchet attached is the front of the cover. Take the front of the cover and line up at the front of the bow.
- Roll cover towards the back of the boat, up and over any obstacles such as a windshield, bow rails, a high console, or a bimini top (bimini top must be folded flat). Position the cover over the rub rail on each side of the boat and make sure that the cover stays positioned over each side of the boat.
- Adjust and position the cover over the side rub rails of the boat as desired.
- Once adjusted, at the back of the cover the rope ratchet is contained inside a Velcro pouch. Open this Velcro pouch and hand pull the rope as tight as you can, once tight by hand begin to use the ratchet to tighten until it becomes difficult to click.
- Test the tension on your rope to ensure it is tight all the way around. Be sure the cover cannot slip off the boat.
- If you are trailering your boat with the cover installed, in addition to tightening the rope ratchet, please also attach the provided straps to the cover. These straps wrap around underneath of the boat to add extra security when trailering, and are not meant to be in use while the boat is in the water. Skip this step if you are installing the cover for mooring use.
- Pull the straps from underneath the boat and attach to the buckle on the other side of the boat. Tighten straps as needed.
To clean your Boat Cover, we suggest diluting a mild liquid detergent in cold or warm water, then lightly cleanse with a sponge. Please spot-clean only, as this cover is too large to fit in most commercial washers. Never place your cover in a dryer.
