Rankin cover puts big scratch on the side of my boat
Part question, part warning.

The new to me Rankin cover I bought from another WWer has slightly worn ends at the rubrail hooks. Much to my horror it one of the hooks put a big deep scratch on the side of my boat right on the top next to the step plate in a very visible area as I was installing the cover last night. The scratch is about 2" long, nearly all the way through the gelcoat so I don't even think I can sand it out. Anybody else have this problem with their Rankin cover?

Nope, had mine for 3 years now and now problems what so ever. Good luck getting out the scratch.

BAH, that sucks! I'll be checking the felt on my rub rail hooks for sure. I don't have a Rankin cover but any make is fallible.

Never had the problem. I make a piont to make sure those hooks are hooked whenever I tow with the cover on or if the weather looks like it might be crap. Otherwise I don't mess with them at all.
