If your boat cover is not properly supported, it can sag in the middle after a heavy rain. You don’t want rain, leaves, dirt, and other debris to collect on your boat cover, since they can promote the growth of mold and mildew.
You have two options for a boat cover support: buy a boat cover support system or build your own.
TinBoats.net offers instructions on how to build a PVC boat cover frame. Building your own frame means you can customize the frame to fit your boat perfectly.
As long as you have the time and energy, building your own support frame is one of your best options for a sturdy, customized frame.
Here is what you’ll need to build your own boat cover support:
- 3/4″ or 1″ PVC (available at most hardware stores)
- 3/4″ or 1″ PVC elbows, couplings, and tee’s (how many you need depends on the size of your boat)
- PVC glue
- Garden hose (to help form the arches)
- Measuring tape
