There are 2 ways we are finishing the
Thistle covers, with snaps under rubrail or with tie
downs to trailer.
This is the most common method of attaching the cover.
It requires a little set up time when you first get
the cover, but makes putting the cover on and off easy
from then on. It also is a very secure and easy way
to hold the cover on when the boat is on a lift or on
When your cover arrives, it will come with
Snaps for the cover
A setting tool to attach the
snaps to the cover, so they will line up to
the snaps already on your boat
New screw-in snaps for the
boat in case you have some missing or never
had any snaps.
You will need a hammer. Installing
the snap hardware while the cover is on the boat ensures
the exact best fit.
This method of cover attachment is good if you are mooring
your boat on a trailer or on a lift with walkways around
it. We have sewn webbing loops to the underside of the
cover hemline at intervals along each side. We supply
tie cords for you to tie from each loop down to your
trailer or lift. This method avoids having to put snaps
into your boat.
Above is an example of snap attachment
into the rubrail of the boat.
