How's that for a title??? Get your minds out of the gutter!

So, my boat cover was having problems with water pooling up in the rear corners, with the trunk cushion and the rear rails forming a barrier that kept the water in.

The problem is that the area of my cover that needed to be raised up for it to drain better was the dead space that was directly above the rear seat. I read a cool solution on the forums and decided to give it a try.

I got a pair of exercise balls from walmart for under $10 each. I was also having water pool up in the area behind the windshield before the engine cover. So I have a "T" there that's padded with a couple smaller foam balls. (credit to Newty for the "T" idea).

It's working great. No more pools of water on the cover after it gets rained on. Yep, my boat's got big blue balls! hahaha.
