Buttons on boat covers hard to snap on

Is it possible to apply some type of product to soften up my boat covers in order to snap-on them on easier? My cover sections have shrunk and are very difficult to stretch into place in order to snap on. (Some sections have windows - and all look like a canvas weave material underneath, and a white smooth naugahide looking finish on the outside. Not sure what this stuff is called). The covers are actually in pretty good shape for a 1980 Sylvan Sportster IO. I suspect the previous owner hardly ever used them. I need to. I can't locate anythone on the web making exact replacements from a pattern that old, without having to send in the originals.

I had the same problem but since my covers are vinyl, by using them consistently through the summer, they eventually stretched. Maybe through use, yours will do the same?
