Being a convert from the cartop upside down to the cartop right side up congregation, I had my new cover on the GII to keep the rain out of the boat while it was on the roof of my Toyota Highlander.
Did you know that the cover on the GII can hold 2132 gallons of rainwater?
It rained during the night and we broke camp the next morning. Marianne was driving and ALL THE WINDOWS WERE OPEN.
She pulled out ot the campsite onto the road and hit he brakes.
All 2132 gallons came off of the cover and into the open windows. Well better in the car than in the GII on the roof.
Does any one know why they stopped putting rain gutters on cars?
The car dried out in a few hours. It took a little longer for Marianne to dry off. She has to stop wearing cotton shirts.
A few days later when we left the next camp ground, Janes Island SP, I got in the car with all the windows closed, stomped on the gas and mashed the brake. All 2132 gallons landed on the ground
, not in the car.
BTW paddling into a 20 knot wind
on Chesepeake Bay is work but umbrella sailing down wind is lots of fun.
