Default Ripped Boat Cover

I went out to the boat this evening and imagine my horror. My new (to me) Taylormade Boat cover has a 3ft RIP!!! Water had pooled and ripped through! I had not noticed that my support had failed. Hell, I hadn't even realized that it rained...

I see that there are boat cover repair kits, but how effective are they? Do I need to have it professionally repaired or just use a DIY kit? I dont want a half assed repair on a $500 cover.

And yes, I know I need to fix the reason that water pooled in the first place. Working on that. :-/

Well, two problems with that.
First, it was not a defect that ripped it, it was my fault that I let water pool in it.
Second, I bought it in "like new" condition from a fellow PFF member. It looked like it had never been on a boat. Let me clarify, I am not mad at him in any way. It was exactly as he represented it. The rip is entirely my fault.

I had to get some cover support poles at academy to keep water off. Don't get them from west $$$$ shower curtain rod would probably work too. I'd call Taylor made and see they may work with you, or be able to repair it for a decent fee.

I read one of those tips in a fishing magazine. This guy used the big exercise balls & blew them up & placed them to hold up the canvas where it wouldn't pool water.

What town? I'm guessing P'cola?
I'm in Montgomery...

Thanks for all of the idea on how to support cover, but I've already got an idea about that. I just need to figure out how to fix the rip in the cover.

Don't lose any sleep over it.

It's a simple fix.

A patch under the rip and some stitching.

Ouch! Sorry to hear about that. I would expect you could find a local canvas shop to repair it. There is a guy here in Pcola who could do it but that would be a hike for you.
