1X Cover for Outside Storage

Post by Mike » Wed, 27 Sep 2000 04:00:00


I am looking for any reccomendations on a cover for my 99 Hudosn Hvy Single.
The cover I bought form Hudson has only lasted two years (7 months of the
year).  I would like a cover that go on on off easy and will provide
protection against the spring/summer/fall elements.  I store the boat inside
during the cold Upstate NY winters.

Any suggestions/reccomendations would be appreciated.

Does anybody know of a good way to repair rips in nylon?

The cover offered with my Peinert Dolphin is a really good one, though not
cheap.  Check out www.sculling.com or call the Peinert company you might be
able to get one from him.

good luck

Diane Upson in New Haven, CT makes high quality, custom boat covers, for
almost any size rowing shell.  I don't know her email address, but her
husband works for Vespoli (no business relation between Vespoli and
Diane's boatcover business, BTW).  Anyway, her husband's address is

Mike,

Like you, I store my boat outdoors in the spring/summer/fall. I bought
a cover earlier this season from Row Works Clothing (formerly Burnham
Boat Slings(?)) that I'm *very* happy with.  It's a light canvas that
supposedly keeps out UV rays (Sunbrella?). It's designed really well
and can be used with or without the riggers attached. What I like most
is that it's very light and I can quickly get it on and off the boat
while the boat is still racked. I unzip the bow and stern sections
seperately, then just push the cover off and leave it lying on the rack
until I'm done rowing and ready to re-cover. The downsides are a pretty
long wait time (4-5 months in my case) and the pricetag ($300). If that
doesn't bother you I highly recommend it. Call Peter at 603-643-2542.
(I have no financial interest Row Works.)

Good luck,
Steve
