Q:I intend to use this product on my PWC to hold light equipment while in use. Will the Suction cups hold in a wet environment while operating on the water ?Asked on 8/6/2012 by Dusty from St. Pete Beach, Fl.
Q:If the boat is kept in a marina how easy are they going to be to install and put the cover in place when the boat is still in the water?Asked on 5/16/2011 by Anonymous from Bismarck, ND
A:If you only have access to one side of the boat, you have to stay inside the boat to stick them onto the side of the boat you can't reach from the dock. In our Bayliner open bow, you can stand on the aft of the boat and roll up the canopy toward the front, reaching down the sides to release the suction cups. Then when you put the cover back on, start from the front with the rolled up canopy. Set it across the bow, reach over and affix the suction cups and then unroll the cover, sticking suction cups as you unroll the canopy toward the stern..
We have a 18.5 foot open bow Bayliner, this may be more difficult on a larger boat or a cuddy cabin.Answered on 6/8/2012 by Glwoll from Russell, KY
A:For me the suction cups are easy to install on a pontoon both on the dock side and the water side. What is difficult is hooking the cover to the suction cups on the water side. I use my kayak and go around in the water to attach my cover with bungee cords to the suction cups. Otherwise, I have to be on the boat with the cover over my head which can be done on a pontoon since the sides are open but it's a pain to do. I would think with any other boat (speed boat)you would need to have some way to get in the water (canoe/kayak)to secure your cover properly. I hope this helps.Answered on 8/16/2011 by SS from Chautuaqua Lake NY

A:They come with a bungee like cord that you hook to. I would not recommend these for travel since the bungee cord would stretch in the wind. They are ideal for a boat cover to prevent weather while be stationary either docked or on your trailer.Answered on 8/16/2011 by SS from Chautauqua Lake, NY
