Rain is in the forecast for Northern California and not only are we ready for it, we really need it. When it comes to preparing for the heavy rain there are a few things that need to be done to be sure that equipment, plants, and outdoor supplies are protected. In the instance of covering the boat, the standard cover that straps around the hull and over the cabin area can only do so much. If you've ever had to cover a boat and check on it after a storm chances are you found that the cover was holding gallons of water, or the cover failed under the weight of the buckets of water that it accumulates.
If you have dealt with this problem and are ready for a solution that is simple, economical, and effective, you'll be glad to know that we have the plan and the fittings to meet your needs. Our PVC Boat Cover Support Frame will hold your boat cover up in an arched fashion so that the rain and elements can freely shed off the sides of the boat.
"It took about an hour to fashion the frame using Circo Slip Tees, Slip Crosses, 45 and 90 degree fittings and a few lengths of pipe", says Joe Ramey, founder of Circo Innovations, Inc. "The frame design utilizes center supports along the ridge to ensure rigidity and maximize runoff under the heaviest rain and snow."
After constructing the frame and supports you can easily secure your standard boat cover material over the top and batten down the hatches. Have your boat outlast the rains and be ready for summer.
