GS-CP Canvas Pole Mount
The Canvas Pole Mount is designed to fit the plastic tip of most common cover support poles (Taylor Made, Taco, etc) that pass through a grommet in the cover. It is important that the canvas is taught so the pole does not fall to one side or the other and the wind will not get under the cover. Check to see that the Gullsweep® arms are parallel to the water and that the vanes will not touch the surface and wear the canvas.
Thread the centre pin provided with your GS-1 into the threaded end of the GS-CP.
Place the stainless steel washer on the centre pin, then the O-Ring to keep it in place.
Push the GS-CP assembly on the support pole before the canvas has been installed.
If the GS-CP hole is too tight you can cut a slot in the open end with a hack saw. This will allow it to expand slightly. Cut a little at a time until it fits securely.
If the GS-CP is too loose on the support pole, use tape or a rubber band to build up the pin diameter.
Adjust the pole height to have some tension on the cover. Loose poles may get picked up by the wind and the bottom moved out of position.
Insure adequate clearance between the rotating Gullsweep® and the cover to prevent wear or tearing of cover. If necessary, the GS-CP can be put on the pole after the canvas for more height, or the arms can be bent up and down, level to gain height over the canvas (see GS-1 Instruction Sheet.)
Takes seconds to put in place and seconds to remove and store when your boat is running.
Gullsweep® performs best when it is level to the water.
