The tarpaulin frame from O.B. Wiik AS can be adapted to all boat types. 48 mm aluminium tubes are kept in stock in lengths of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 metres. Tubes for the variable adjustment of deck supports are adapted to an inner diameter of 48 mm and provided in 1 metre lengths. Standard deck supports consist of one 48 mm tube in a 1 metre length and one 44 mm tube in a 2 metre length, both in 1 metre lengths. These can also be adjusted variably from 1 metre to approx. 1.80 metres. Deck supports are also available in 2+1 m, 3+1 m, etc.
Telescopic legs are placed downwards towards the deck. One telescopic leg is placed straight down (see illustration). The frame can then be adjusted upwards or downwards as needed. To secure the frame, attach rope or a ratchet strap from the top of the frame down and down into the railing.
The frame should be attached to the boat using rope fore and aft. All bolts must be tightened firmly. A tarpaulin of the right size attached by a rope running under the keep of the boat (or containers with water/sand attached to the eyelets) will ensure that the tarpaulin and frame do not shift during the winter.
Keep in mind the importance of proper ventilation under the tarpaulin to prevent rot and mildew.
Also remember that a tarpaulin superstructure that is too high can cause windage problems and one that is too low can cause snow and water to accumulate.
If you choose both a Wiik frame and tarpaulin, the boat will be properly covered. See the separate price lists for rentals and sales of tarpaulins. Tarpaulins can also be custom-made in our factory.
