Parks your a comedian in retirement too, “the inventory was a little low”. HC was the place to go to get everything, it was on the shelf. That probably effected your bottom line but it was a pleasure for the customers. You never know how much you miss someone until they are gone.

I have those on my motorcycles. I never thought to use them on a boat.

I've sworn off snaps completely. Every semi-permanent attachment on my boat is with a turnbuckle (or twisted stud, depending on who you talk to). No snaps -- No problems.

Sorry, still trying to figure out how to post a photo from my phone...

My old military Jeep body had a belt rail system that used an aluminum channel to hold the piping. In the five years I owned, I expected it wear through as much as I took the top on and off but it proved to be quite robust. I've considered using something similar on my boats to enclose the rear during the winter.

It is a keder strip. Very common in marine canvas work. We used it for our flybridge and sundeck enclosures.

Thanks. As long as I was in the upholstery buisness, I never knew the name of those. I have seen similar, I'll bet more expensive, type mounting systems on boats I worked on.
