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.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
