- Are there just holes in the cover to connect the (cover on and then connect) or slots (connect and the put on cover)?
Actually I guess those are two versions of the same question.
I install half the cover, put the falls through and then clip the other half of the cover, all while in the water. I usually use a beach ball or some foam on the seats to raise the centre for rain runoff.
Yes, I just have two holes in the fabric to bring my dingy bridle thru.
You may want to consider self adhesive snaps for your cover. I have used them and they work well.
