Who covers the gheenoe. The car is outside and the "g" is inside. What is important is important.

I use a large plastic tarp (20 feet long, I believe), double it over and secure it bow and stern with bungies; tie a rope around the midsection. You can buy a little pole at Wal Mart that sits on the deck amidship and makes a kind of tent that allows rain water to run off. Strong winds sometimes open up the tarp at one end or the other. But mainly the arrangement works pretty well.

I live on a canal system in S.W. Fl. so I went to a local marina that's a custom canvas/tarp boat cover shop. Got an estimate on a custom tonneau cover for the "LICKETY SPLITLY" so that I could keep her covered in the water for acouple days at a time , I almost choked when he told me $500. So if anyone knows of a better deal ,please let me know BIGJONFISH

I picked up a grey cover at Bass Pro in Orlando. It covers the Classic perfectly.

Best regards

The cover is a metalic grey for 14-16' boats, found at Bass Pro Shops. I made a PVC frame to keep the rain from pooling. Bungied down, it stands up pretty well to wind and rain.

Great looking solution Bob. Is the pvc glued into one piece or do you break it down when not in use?

It's pressed together...never got around to glueing it yet. I just take it out, put it in the yard and go.

I use the "16 Foot Boat Cover" from Walmart for my Classic, I think it says water resistant, but it is waterproof as far as I can tell because it will pool water after rain storms and not drip through. I tried those plastic prop-up musroom things from Walmart and they would tip over with wind (
too wobbly). I tried building a couple PVC "tents" to set in the Gheenoe with limited success. Now my current soloution to a perfect fit with no water pooling is to turn my 1 man kayak upside down on top of my Gheenoe and secure the boat cover's built in clips (and to some custom squeeze on hooks from WalMart) with 1 foot bungees staked to the ground.
