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?
