    Took three mailings to get all the parts.
    Also, the parts for adjusting the bow seem to be ineffective.

      Comments about Boat Cover Support Bows:

      Some have complained about the wood breaking when bent. Wood bends best when heated or soaked in hot water. I put the wood bow in my hot tub for 2 hours and it bent easily and perfectly to shape. Works well now to support the cover for my 1957 Century "Resorter".

      The fiberglass ones are way too flexible

          I thought fiberglass would be a good choice. Nope. Too many times I've seen them collapse. Plan on a pole in the center of each one to keep it doing what is supposed to.

                I bought this because fiberglass was not available at the time. I was able to use the 8 ft version, but the 6 ft broke with what I consider to be not a lot of force- I would opt for fiberglass next time

                    Comments about Boat Cover Support Bows:

                    Very durable but too expensive and the rubber caps described are always missing. Good for use on small boats to keep canvas up. I use bungee cords to anchor and tighten canvas cover over the bows. Not sufficient as a winter cover unless supported by sturdy bracing to hold snow load.

                        Pictures and description misleading. Product does not come with rail mounts, just the bow. Mounts must be ordered separately. The bow works well.
