Well, as the one review said, one is good, two is better sounds like a great way to go about it. I have one, and I don't have much problem with water pooling due to the fact that I have a ski pole that sits right in front of the motor that also keeps the top up in the back, so its like I almost have two. This is very easy to set up, my 8yo helps once in a while, but its very easy to do this yourself.

Once you have the pole where you want it, it can hang onto the straps and doesn't move around a bunch even when taking down and putting up. Then once its all up, just toss the cover over and walk away. Set it and forget it.

**NEVER TESTED WITH SNOW, Boat is garaged over winter**

I have a 19 ft. Dual console bowrider made by sea pro. I purchased a summer cover for it and gave this cover support system a try. Wasn't totally satisfied. Found the webbing and buckles to be flimsy. The support pole that came with it wasn't tall enough for my application. Probably work better on smaller boats or with 2 sets for larger boat. I ended up returning it..Hassle free . Love that about west marine thus far. I used some pine 1x4 1 piece from the engine to the windshield with a door hinge, 2nd piece attaches to the hinge and continues to bow rail.

    I had to return this item as it was too short for my 23 foot deck boat. I could not use this item as the pole sat in the middle of the windo door on mt boat.

        Comments about Taylor Made Boat Cover Support System:

        The cover support does do something to keep the cover up off the interior but if you don't tie down the cover very tight then it will puddle. We needed something for when the boat was in the water and not on a trailer. Not the ideal situation so it probably not the best assessment.

          I guess you could install this buy yourself, with a little patience, I did it with a helper. Much easier.

              Product works as described. Bought a Taylor Made Cove and they recommend this. Give greats support so water and snow run off the cover. Easy to adjust to fit my boat.

                  Well, as the one review said, one is good, two is better sounds like a great way to go about it. I have one, and I don't have much problem with water pooling due to the fact that I have a ski pole that sits right in front of the motor that also keeps the top up in the back, so its like I almost have two. This is very easy to set up, my 8yo helps once in a while, but its very easy to do this yourself.

                    I use it on a 13' rowboat. I Have not found the best strap placement in the back of the boat to prevent pooling of water between the straps. Will continue trying different options. Is very easy to set up and there was plenty of strapping. Will be 4-5 stars if I can figure it out.
