Where can I get snap on boat cover made?

Question

shinde

Anyone know of a place in Central/Western MN that can put together an after market boat cover that snaps on the boat? I would need the snaps put on my boat as well. Have a 16' Lund Predator. Thanks for any help/advice.

canvas craft in ramsey is a good place to go. i had a 18 foot lund pro v that i had them put a cover with snaps on and it turned out really nice. i think it was around $500.

good luck

I used Canvas Plus in Rogers. Top quality and it looks great. I would suggest waiting for the boat or sportsman shows. I got a 10% discount at the show.

Shinde,

A number of years ago I had a snap cover put on my Predator by a company in West Fargo (sorry I'm forgetting the companies name).

Just a couple of words of caution! Mine shrunk a ton after getting wet then sun, etc. and slowly but surely the snaps started to pop and not be able to reach the bottom part of the snap. Ended up ripping the cover up and going in the garbage. I'd also recommend at least three boards as supports--mine only had two and I think the third would have provided a little more slack for the shrinkage issue.

Also had to always take the front seat out which was more a pain than an issue.

I loved the snap cover until the snaps started to go and my boss had a similar cover from the same West Fargo company on his Crestliner and had no issues so I wouldn't go against this but just want to help if I can.

Alot of it has to do with the quality of the canvas each particular shop uses. Our personal boat that we have up north has one of these types of covers on it and it sits out in the weather year around. We've had this cover going on ten years now and it's still as strong as the day we installed it. Also, we put in four bows under the canvas which really helps the water shed off. Just ask around with the different companies about the type of canvas that they use.

      depends on what lake you go to i guess. i was up the weekend it was so bitter cold. very few lakes have plowed roads like winnie, red, mille lacs. there was probably 6 inches of snow on the ground and lake. the snow on the lake was drifted and had a bit of a crust to it. not sure what the warm strech did to it though. there are several bait shops you could call!!!!!!!!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.
