Popular Boat Covering Terms

Buying a watercraft is oftentimes a pricey purchase. Once the transaction is complete, protecting this marine asset becomes top priority. A boat cover or tarp is the most popular way to achieve this. In order to have a better, more comprehensive understanding about the terminology associated with boat covers, we must first understand some of the nautical terms associated with this boat accessory.

  • Bow Slat - A flexible length of fiberglass or wood used primarily for supporting and providing the boat topper with an arc to prevent the pooling of water or snow on the cover while the boat is not in use.
  • Hull - The hollow, lowermost portion of a boat or ship, floating partially submerged and supporting the remainder of the watercraft.
  • Beam - The greatest width of the boat. When purchasing boat toppers or covers, it is important to know this measurement.
  • LOA - This marine term stands for Length Overall. Knowing this measurement is vital when purchasing either pre-manufactured or custom made boat covers.
  • Cleat - A fitting of wood or metal, secured to the deck, mast, or spar, with two horns around which ropes are fastened. The classic cleat to which lines are belayed is approximately anvil-shaped and can be used to secure a boat to dock or fasten a cover or tarp in order to protect and shelter the seat upholstery and interior of the boat.
  • Boat Tarp - A small, medium, or large piece of fabric which is stretched over the boat to shelter and protect the seat upholstery and general interior from the elements. Boat tarps are available in many different materials and fabrics from canvas and vinyl to the lighter duty poly brands. Tarps can be pre-manufactured or custom made and are rated from light duty to hurricane strength.

    Boat covers, tops and upholstery are designed to protect boats from exposure to the weather and saltwater. Depending on the type of boat that you have, you might want to choose a specific kind of upholstery or top to protect your water vessel. You can also choose options intended for use inside a shelter. These covers add another layer of protection to keep your boat and accessory items in good condition. When exploring the various canopy, wrap, top and cover options available through retail and wholesale distributors, be sure that you know which kind will suit your vessel. Some of the systems are specifically designed to protect watercrafts during storms and hurricanes. Others are only meant to protect the vessel from normal weather conditions. You will also want to consider how a canopy’s fabric covers your boat. Many of them have connectors that tie to the deck, bow slats or hull. Others have poles that connect the fabric shelter to the vessel. When comparing custom canvas covers made by various manufacturers, you should consider what types of customer support they can offer. This will help you choose a company that ensures its customers receive the right types of ranger systems, vents and canvas tops that they need for their boats. You can often compare the customer service support of various companies by searching the internet for consumer forums. This is where individuals discuss their experiences with retail stores and wholesale suppliers. This will help you choose a company that has good products and strong customer services, as well as low prices.
