Docke Edge™ Boat Cover Bows
The bows themselves are quality products, however the mounts are cheap plastic items that will deteriorate and break in a short time. Also the bows do not fit securely into the plastic mounts. Ordered metal mounts from a competitor as there was no indication that mounts came with the bows. The competitors mounts are great for durability and strength, but they also allow the bows to fit insecurely. Have an idea in mind to create during the winter that may be just the ticket to make everything work together.

Some guys use wooden strapping to make the bow so that the boat cover doesn't pool with rainwater. I bought one of these, and it seems to work OK. I am still learning exactly where and how to place it. It is hard to bend and to keep it where you want it.
The two ends fit together just fine in the metal clasp, and it bows well. So far, so good. I don't think it is strong enough for snow cover. I will switch to a long wooden board in the late fall strung between my windshield and motor.

Not impressed !!! These are a 2 peice version that are so skinny and flimsy ! They do not fit in the metal bow sockets tight ! Only 1/8 inch thick ! To think i could have just cut a season of bows out of 1 2 x 4 for 3 bucks and paid almost 90 for 4 of these junk items was a big mistake !!!!! Don't waste your money!!!!!!
