When I bought the boat it came with a very nice custom canvas cover. It was secured to the trailer with individual ropes from metal D rings on the cover around the frame of the trailer. This was a PAIN to take off and on, so I ditched it for a long bungee that I run through the D Rings and around the trailer frame. This is still a pain..my mechanic suggested I drill into the frame to attach tarp hooks to make it easier.
The ones I found are between 2 1/2 and 3 1/2" long and seem a little big for my needs. They also look a little crappy against my nice painted and waxed trailer. I am also a little hesitant to drill holes in my trailer as it might encourage rust.
What do you guys use? Any way to do this easily and have it look good?
