rope hook spacings on a 90

Recommended Posts

Hi Chris

As I have found out the hard way if your fitting a new hood from scratch fit the hood and allow it to drape in the sun for an hour or so to allow the canvas to open out then mark the position of the front hooks using the canvas as a guide drill and fit the front hooks, fit the ropes to the hooks.

then mark the rear corners again using the hood as a guide make sure you pull the hood tight, fit the hooks then use the canvas as a guide to mark the rest of the side hooks.

I have found many hoods have the cord spacings slightly off to each other ( i have had 3 on my 90 over 10 yrs)

when it is fitted make sure it is pulled tight and kept tight as it will shrink when it gets wet the first few times.

have fun
