Well my initial thoughts are that I am very happy. I have not even added the Hangtyte yet and already is pretty tight. Super happy with the quality as well as the material I choose. Only two minor issues. one is the bungees around the tower supports leave a little gap so will need to figure out a way to tighten. might just need to add another snap. Second, the rear over the swim platform is not 100% correct as you can see. Will call today and I'm sure they will find a way to fix. But overall I am thrilled and I love the black. over the winter I'm pulling the decals off. Boat will look stealth. I'll posy more pictures once the Hangtyte is installed.

Nice! How does the cover work with the tower (the cord that cinches tight under the rubrail)? Is it one solid cord?

On our previous boat, there was one cord all the way around the hull, thinner, but same construction as water ski towline. The connection point was centered on the stern, below the rubrail. Originally, it was designed to be tied at that point, but I put some loops on the ends, and used heavy duty bungee cords, crossed and attached them to the lifting rings on the transom. Never leaked and it was tight enough that it kept insects, raccoons, etc out of the boat. Lasted 28 years, the last 13 on the boat all summer in the sun. I have to admit, though, it was getting a little thread-bare and was getting near its last season. Sold it with the boat and was still doing its job, though.


Have a great day of boating

On mine, the cord has clips and loops to disconnect at each tower point. Velcro flaps give you access to the loop and clip. At one of those points, I just cinch together.

As you can see there is a Velcro flap that closes each opening around each tower support. Below that there is a long Velcro enclosure running horizontal. The cinch rope runs in there. There are two ropes, one going around the front and a second around the back. Once on and around the tower supports you join the ropes and pull tight. I used a carabineer on one side and a rope ratchet to pull it tight. All tucks under that long Velcro enclose which is top notch. Hoping to get my Hangtyte installed this week. But it is going to e so nice and hot we are going to take the boat out after work instead.

Well this Hangtyte thing is slick. Of course I took a deep breath before cutting a hold in my brand new cover. So with that added the new cover is awesome. Curious how it holds up during trailering. But the unit is solid, well built and well engineered.

That Hangtyte is a great idea for boats with towers. New cover looks great. I give you credit on cutting into the brand new cover - would have had to work up my courage on that one.
