A vented support pole is designed to help prevent water from pooling and causing damage to your cover. When water sits for long periods of time dirt and debris will begin to settle in that area causing stains and possible discoloration. Water pooling also creates the ideal conditions for mold and mildew to grow. Our vented support pole provides additional ventilation to allow your cover to fully breath and fend off any mildew buildup.
- Made of durable, anodized aluminum with plastic top vent
- Telescoping pole adjusts to virtually any height up to 59" tall
- Non-slip rubber base to ensure a secure installation
- Smooth surface will not scratch or discolor your cover
- Provides additional ventilation to prevent mold and mildew to boat interior
- Vent installs quickly and easily with no screws or fasteners
- Supports any area (front or back) of your boat cover
- No support straps necessary
- Two support poles are often required to achieve the best results
I now have 3 of these for our Bennington pontoon, spread out along the length of the boat, and they are all sturdy and the vents were easy to install (using the included template). My favorite feature is how short these collapse, so that I can just throw them under the seats when we're out on the water. Then we just reinstall them and adjust to length needed once back to the dock.
Taking a little bit of time to install this correctly, so its in the center of your cover, pays off in the long run. The pole fits securely to the vent so you know where to position the pole and know that it wont slip out. The vent itself really allows the interior of my boat to dry quickly, totally eliminating mildew issues I've had in the past. Would recommend to any seasoned boater!
Love the way this pole adjusts to any height you need it at. The quick thumb lever lets you loosen, adjust, then tighten the pole to the exact height that works for your boat cover. Once it is adjusted, it stays put and does not "sink" back down like some of the other poles I've used have done.
Installed my cover with the support poles last week, and we just had our first major storm since. The cover and the support poles do not even look like they've budged. Pretty dadgum impressive considering we had 60mph gusts with this system.
Using one of these on my fishing boat, with my new Sharkskin Plus cover (which is very nice by the way). Support pole keeps all the water and debris from gathering on the cover and eventually deteriorating it. Slightly more expensive than other options but well worth it.
I thought I would only need one support pole for my boat, but after install, I realized my mistake. The cover really needed two support poles to shed water efficiently, due to my boat's length. After ordering the second pole, the system is amazing.
Nothing worse than a support pole that does not support, which I've had the unfortunate experience of purchasing from other stores. This thing is built like a tank, and I don't think there is a storm out there that could damage it. As adjustable as needed and then snaps right into the vent. 5 stars all around.
Once this thing is installed, it is great. I just hated having to put the hole in my new cover. I am not very handy, so of course this made me nervous, but in all honesty it was pretty easy to do. Make sure your cover is on your boat before you use the template to measure and cut the hole!
I've had other support poles before and always have found a drawback with each type. This support pole is secured via the vent, keeping it in place as the cover moves in the wind, and the vent keeps air flowing through my boat. Moving air is not a bad thing in a marine environment. The metal itself feels strong and substantial.
Was curious as to how easy this would actually install with my cover. Could not have been simpler. Just put the fabric of the cover between top piece and the bottom piece and snap together. Once the vent itself is installed, insert the pole and adjust to the correct height. Was refreshingly easy to install.
First, it obviously tents your cover so that water runs off and does not pool, and also lets wet moist air escape from inside your boat, leading to much fewer mold and mildew issues. My boat is dry every time I pull the cover off.
