Our Club( Vale Of Glamorgan Model Boat Club) Attempted to Use Our Pop-Up Gazebo (6x3mtr) for the second time only, I say Attempted as we had many Failures, 8, On the Framework, Cross pieces splitting. There Was Only very Slight Wind on the day 8mph. Any Other Clubs Had Such Problems ?????. This was purchased on Ebay, New.
Hi Skipper, sorry to say, this is quite common, the cross pieces are light plastic and not up to the job in any wind. Try replacing the brken supports with ally and re rivet them, also dont put the canvas on till the frame is up, it stresses the frame to much, not good but when you have spent the money you dont want to through it in the scip after 2 outings
