A common type of boat cover, a snap cover uses snap buttons to cover key parts of the boat. It is important to maintain the snap pieces by cleaning and using a lubricant on them regularly. This is particularly important in saltwater environments as saltwater can cause these snaps to stick and become incredibly difficult to remove.
Snap covers can easily be taken on and off and are a simple DIY way to help keep your boat in good shape for longer.
In contrast to a snap cover, shrink wrap is not a DIY solution, covers the entire boat and is more of a long term method for protecting your vessel. These types of covers see most of their use when a boat is being stored for long periods of time like during winterization, or if it is being transported great distances such as across the country.
