I'm in southeast Virginia so the winters are very mild. I put my cockpit cover on the other day and I think I'll just stick with that for winter storage outside this year. I want to be able to easily access the boat also. When I put the cover on, there were a few snaps that needed replacing. I need to replace a couple male ends on the boat also. I want to buy a Hoover Snap tool and some snaps. I found the tool for $139. Any better deals out there? What's the best place to grab some snaps from also? Thanks.
