Works as Advertized

"Purchased the 2023 model for our 20 ft. boat two years ago.
First set-up took a little longer (about two hours) as the top spar and side struts have to be set to the right length and width for the boat, then secured with the tension straps in the proper directions so it can't fall down.
Once set and properly secured, it is solid.
The instructions are of a general nature, and so they should be, considering there are hundreds of different designs and shapes of boats, there is no such thing as "one size fits all".
You have to be prepared to experiment a bit with the initial set up until you find what works best for your particular boat.
It made it through the first winter just fine and the boat was completely dry. We live in a moderate to heavy snow load region.
If the temp. is cold the snow slides right off on it's own. With milder temp. some snow will stick to the tarp but a light tap or two with a broom and it slides off no problem.
Take down in spring took about 20 minutes from start to finish.
Second set-up the following year took the two of us about 45 minutes in total.
Survived second winter just fine, no problems at all.
Take down again took about 20 minutes.
We like the product, it works just fine for us and we're more than satisfied with it.
It has survived two winters with heavy snowfall and cold temps (-20's, -30's) and still looks like new.
Has easily paid for itself compared to paying for two winters of storage somewhere else.

Disappointed

"We bought the 1923 model to fit our 22' pontoon boat. This model was supposed to fit up to 23'. It's a pain to set up (took 2 of us several hours), and the tarp was not large enough for our 22' boat. Tieing the rope in a zig zag pattern under the boat is a great idea, but doesn't work so well when the boat is on a trailer leaving you about 8 inches between the ground and the trailer to work with. The instructions also left alot to be desired."

Great Design

Pros: easy set up, heavy big tarp
"When we took it out of the box, my husband and I were a bit unimpressed, but we decided to try it anyway. The directions were just general pictures, but the point was clear on each step. After the two of us got the frame up, we were pretty confident that it was a good product. To tie the tarp down, we just threw the rope under the trailer for the other person to grab, and tightened as we went along. It took 2 hours beginning to end, and sure looks secure.
Our power boat is 21 feet, and we folded our wakeboard tower down, so it all fit inside the frame nicely."

Navigloo Winter Shelter System for Boats - A1

"Assembly time was very reasonable, could have done it alone however my 12 yr old was a great help-I am convinced he would be able to complete the assembly on his own. The tarp was a tad heavy to place over the structure alone. The only negative was the 2 cords provided to tie the tarp down- we used one cord and then decided to purchase bungy cords for the other half of the tarp-Navigloo should really consider to replacing the cords with bungy cords instead"

not sure

Cons: the rope was to short
"When I opend the box I didden't liked what I saw. All the parts where made of plastic. We will have to wait for the snow to see if it will work .When they said heavy-duty tarp it is heavy and it's big enough to cover a 28ft poontoon boat"
