Frequently Asked Questions

Can you travel with the cover on at highway speeds?
Yes, your tarp must be tied down properly.
  • By pulling the stern draw cord extremely tight.
  • Then attach a good quality rubber strap, tensioned extremely tight to every tie down flap. (* Do NOT use bungee/shock cord *)
This should ensure minimal movement when traveling.

Is the Fabric Waterproof?
Both our lines of fabrics are factory impregnated with a water-repellent solution. The special thread that is used eventually swells and seals all needle holes.

Is the Fabric Breathable?
Our Marine Canvas and the Polyester fabric offer excellent breathability, allowing for proper evaporation of humidity.

Is the DAM Cover Reinforced?
We sew reinforcement to the underside of the cover at all possible factory installed wear points. Items added or changed on your boat may require additional reinforcement.

How Long Does the DAM Cover Last?
There are many different factors that determine the life expectancy of our boat tarps; more or less depending on how you take care of your cover. Examples of things that can affect the life of your cover are, tree sap, bird droppings, and standing or pooling of water for extended periods of time.
