Re: Storm Shutters - Storm Boards
These days, I suppose you could use 2' wide industrial velcro instead of rails or bolts. Two yards of velcro holding the cover on the outside of the portlight, compressed by each wave that slammed it....
"Hello, SeaTow? Yeah, my genoa trimmer is stuck to the cabin side. No, really, he's stuck, he brushed up against the velcro. It's a long story, could you please send help, with a big winch?"
You know, really, I HAVE had to get a pry bar for even a smaller patch of it....
