    I know, right? hey, I'm taking my chances.
    I guess if it does fall - it will clearly be a case of "operator error". Again.
    :D

    Got mine today. Not installing the black cover until the pollen blows itself out next month, but looking forward to it.

    I got one for my birthday. Now I need to decide whether it goes on the front or the back or ... um ... in the middle?

    Or do I go buy a second?

    24s need two - basically where the current poles support.

    Just ordered mine today also, I'm to fat and old to crawl around under the cover. I might get a cheap boat hook to grab the rope from outside the boat, just a thought.

    Installed mine they work great. I can use the boat hook from the dock to pull them tight or should I say tyte.

    Almost tripped on the anti-pooling tether/stap and fell out of the boat today ... from the lift. Recanted my earlier sediments on this mod and bought two HangTytes today. JB members thanks for the nudge forward ... but I am blacklisting myself from the forum for a few weeks to slow the boat monetary outflow.

    I really like this mod. Although I am more than willing to cut numerous holes in my boat, I'm not sure I can bring myself to cut a hole in a perfectly good cover. :eek:

    @Bill D ... I hear you, thought long and hard on cover cutting as well. I took a good look at my 2-year old cover, which I believe is headed to an early grave, due to the salt conditions in my area. I figured this mod is portable to my eventual replacement cover. Investment reuse, helped to tip the scales for this frugal Jetboater.
