The Problem

One of the biggest hassles that we deal with in boating is covering and uncovering the boat every time we want to use it. The cover is supposed to protect the boat, keep it clean, dry, and free from mildew. And for the longest time, poles were supposed to ten the cover up from underneath. So as you were covering your boat, you were supposed to crawl under this cover and set up poles and straps. They were super inefficient. They would fall over, or break, or you would lose pieces. Inevitably with that system, boat covers would stretch, sag, pool with water, rip, and let mildew seep into the upholstery.
