Boat Cover Question
Ok, I bought a used Ranger bass boat a couple weeks ago and it has the original perfect fit cover for it. It has some holes in it that the old owner duck taped and seemed to hold up for a while, but with the constant 95-100 degree weather down here, the tape is pealing up. I went over the holes again and duck taped them but i was wondering if there's another way i can seal the holes. is there a patch or something? I remember swimming pools came with a small patch that you could glue to the lining if the pool leaked or something.2006 Silverado Z71 - 97,000 - totaled, RIP

You might look at some place that sells "tents", as they also have "patch kits" which should work on your boat cover. Good luck!

What type material is it made of?
If it's canvas and the material isnt rotted the best repair would be to get matching canvas and sew patchs over the inside and outside of the holes.
If its one of the poly type covers tape it and replace it as soon as you can. Try strapping another tarp over the area with holes.

i'm not really sure what type of meterial it's made of. It's a really thick heavy cover. It has foam backing. about 1/2" foam pads in certain spots

I did the the very same thing the first time I saw it.
Years ago I made boat canvas and interiors. If the cover is in decent shape patches can be made.

These are from my phone. I can't find our camera so this is the best I could do. The pads i was talking about earlier are in spots where there's alot of tension or stress, like where the pedistal seats are and on the windsheild area and around where the trolling motor is.

That looks like a patch could be sewn on.As long as the cover is not rotting I would have a canvas shop patch that and reinforce any other areas that could use it.
