I always wondered if these things allowed all the water to drain completely away from the hull. It seems like being rubber it would trap pockets of water up against the hull.

I had one.
Price and portability were key for me.
Do a search, you'll find lots of info.

I've had one for 5 years. It's worked great with no problems. You do have to set it up proberly though. The company is great at helping with that.

With thousands in use worldwide we may get a few of cases of animal damage a year. It usually happens late in the fall when the air chambers are left by themselves. Most are easy to repair. Our advice is to remove it when you remove the boat for the season. Customers have reported good results using Ropel from a hardware store.

I had my Super Hawaii on one last season. I really liked it. It took 3 first timers about 4 hours to install it. Worked great all year. Hull was clean. so, no water to speak of was trapped. Same three guys about an hour to remove this fall.

"pay for play politics" what do you think we have now? I think all politicians should be required to wear uniforms, like nascar drivers, showing who their sponsors are.
