Towing with Snap-on Covers in Place? in General Discussion Posted July 20, 2009 · Report reply I have a 2008 Monterey 214 FS that I‚Äôll be trailering about 300 miles next month. Most of the trip will be on 2-lane highways so I‚Äôll probably be going about 60 mph max. Anyway, I have the snap-on covers covers that came with the boat when I bought it new last year. I‚Äôve never trailered this far before, and would like to keep the boat covered when I tow in case of rain and to keep out road grime. Is this a wise idea? Will I be beating up my gel coat by keeping the covers on? Advice appreciated‚Ä¶thanks!
