Hey guys,
When I bought the bought from the previous owner he gave me the Mastercraft foam fender covers but he told me that they do not stay on and will blow off. I figured you guys have the answer on how to make them stay on or do you not use them?

Brad :worthy:Mine have stayed on through rapid acceleration and other similar scenareos... :D

I presume that your are referring to the guide pole covers..... Yep! Use them or ship them to me.... ;)


Put 'em on and use them... no probs here...

on my 84 the trailer poles have an inner pipe and then a "outer pipe" that will turn on the inner pipe. My foam covers are on tight and have survived Montana "reasonable and prudent" speeds. Is it possible you're missing the outer pipe make the diameter smaller? TB

That is what it sure sounds like. They went on tight on my 86 trailer and I never have gave them another thought.

Mine work great, always have.
I do sometimes take them off when not in travel mode, (@ home)

I use zip ties at the top and bottom of each cover, where it's gathered at the elastic.

Never had a problem on my boat with them coming off. Perhaps they are the wrong size for your guide poles?

Are you from Winter Haven? I saw a boat just like your on the Chain last weekend pulling one of those flying tubes.

I have little caps on the tops of my poles that seem to keep them from riding up and off. Don't know if these are available for yours or not but I guess they are holding mine on.
