The Bimini is folded back and resting on the motor cover, under the travel cover.

I love the way the travel cover wraps around the outboard.

I secure the back of the boat to the trailer using 1″ river straps.  They run under the hull and attach to D rings welded to the trailer.  This prevents the boat from shifting from side to side.  And, nothing is rubbing on the side of the boat.  

Benefits of a travel cover:

  1. It keeps your boat clean from dust and flies when stored inside your shop.
  2. Your boat is ready when you are.  No need cleaning the boat  before each use.
  3. It keeps road grime from spraying all over your boat when the semi trailer passes you.
  4. It keeps the UV rays off your upholstery and bright work when traveling.
  5. It keeps prying eyes off your belongings when parked.
  6. It keeps rain out of your boat when traveling or parked overnight.
  7. If that’s not enough, it’s just the right thing to do!

Summary:

Today, I got the compass and stern tow hook installed…photos to follow.  I now just need to attach my registration numbers and get in the water.  It snowed here last night in God’s country.  So much for global warming.
