What happens if the mooring place is exposed to a lot of waves and wind?
The cloth withstands waves and wind and actually dampens the waves. A boat lying on the cloth is calmer than a boat without a canvas.
Isn't it harder to get into the mooring place and moor?
On the contrary, moorings with drift and wind will now be easier. As soon as the bow enters the cover, the boat stabilizes and you can calmly steer the boat without drift. In addition, the boat stops whenever you want due to the cover - no risk of collision with the pier. Then the boat is still and you can moor the boat in peace and quiet.
What happens when I am away from the mooring place e.g. on vacation, will there be growth on the hull?
The small growth that perhaps begins to form dies and disappears when you return to the mooring place and start using your boat.
Does the bow thruster work when the boat is on the hull cover?
When the bow is so far up on the cover that the tunnel to the bow thruster is covered, it does not work. However, the cover protects against overgrowth in the tunnel. It does not matter as in that situation you have no need for a bow thruster. See the question "Will it be more difficult to get into the mooring and moor?".
Can the hull protective cover be insured?

How do you protect the hull cover against theft?
All new Cover and CoverMedium covers today have an ID badge at the front.
By also threading a locking wire through one of the front drainage holes, the thief must always cut the cover. Therefore, it is always visible on a canvas if it is stolen. In addition, we offer for a limited cost to get an optional text in the front edge of the cloth. For example, your name or a company name, etc.
Does the hull cover also protect the transom?
The cover only partially protects the transom against growth depending on the boat and engine type. Any growth on the transom does not affect speed and fuel consumption.
What happens if the hull cover is damaged. A tear or a hole?

Can the hull cover be stored outdoors during the winter?

Is it difficult to clean the hull cover when picking it up?
