When slats are extended in on smaller boats the wood overlap/extended ends cause slats to be unstable (I had to gorilla tape them together.) Metal bands wear on boat cover if transporting boat with cover on, and in that case I put a strip of gorilla tape over the top to avoid the wear problem. On my larger boat I also had to gorilla tape the metal brackets to hold them in place and not collapse (not needed when second set used on my small rowboat.) Needs some design tweaking. For me I was able to solve the problems with gorilla tape.

This product was used on a small 15' sailboat to support a rain cover - which was also purchased from Overton's. I used 4 of them across the boat, in the newly purchased pockets. During the first rain, which was a light rain, 3 of the 4 caved in and the 4th one was deformed. Naturally after they caved in the boat collected a lot of water and was neaerly full of water when I discovered the situation. I presume this was just from the humidity and the weight of the wet cover. They have no supporting strength at all after they absorb some humidity from the air, they are like a "wet noodle". What a joke aned what a bunch of junk. I am so angry and frustrated I can't see straight. Believe me, don't buy this product. This product used to be made well, but not any more.

          • Q:

            I have an older boat with a canvass cover. The cover has slots that support what looks like 48 inch wooden bows. They would have to be attached to a pole that could reach the bottom of the boat. I'm having a hard time finding the right product that will fit into the slots. Will this product work for this or am I better off going to Home Depot and finding something??

          • Q:

            what is the width of this product? I have bow sockets which have an inside opening of one and three quarters of an inch long. I want to know if they will fit with what I have.
