Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

The problem with any flat top, is snow is going to accumulate. There is no need for structural ridge beam. If you think that will hold snow or any cover can, good luck with that.

And keep in mind this is a low buck project...under $100. 5 or 6 frames of my design (for a 32' boat) and about $10 each frame and 3 3/8"x100' rope from Walmart for $5 each. Project is frame only, no tarp cost. Project is not how to cover, but how to build a cheap frame that will hold up.
