DIY boat cover???
Anybody made their own boat cover?
Wasn't thinking of anything ambitious. Buy a tarpaulin which already has eyes on the edges. Measure the beam of the boat every couple of feet, allowing 6" inches extra each side to go over top guard rail. Peg out shape on ground. Lay tarp over it and fold 'darts' into it to match template. Glue and tape darts closed. Cut a slot in to the mid point in the way of the mast and close it with Velcro tape. Stitch on webbing loops midway between bow and mast and midway between mast and stern to hold up cover with halyards. Put pipe lagging on top guard rails to prevent chafe. Maybe cut and Velcro close an access flap near the cockpit, to climb aboard easily. Fit tarp, by lacing onto lower guard rails.
Would this work? Have I overlooked anything? Anyone done this or similar? BTW, I'm trying to avoid loads of sewing.
Next time, it'll all be different.
