Tarp Cover Frame

This Project is thanks to a fellow named Wallie Riddle via the Chip Ahoy website, www.chipford.com .  I actually build a much bigger version that extends from the bow to the stern.  It might have been over-kill.  Pictured below is Wallie Riddle's version on his boat, Carpe Diem.  For more photos go to www.chipford.com .
 I built a frame simular to the one above and it worked great.  However, last winter I resorted to shrink wrapping the Christopher-Jin.  It only cost $100.  That's about twice the amount it cost me for a tarp every year.  It does not seem to matter how careful I was, there was always some point that would chafe through the tarp.
