    Default Boat covers

    What are You Guys using for boat covers?
    I want to buy a cover that is off the shelf and not have one custom made. How do i go about accounting for the engine height with a scoop.
    what hull type cover would look for ,because I havent seen one that specifies low pro v-hull jet boats. The cover would need to be big enough to fit an 18-19 ft with enough to cover the engine with a tall scoop.....Hal

    nothing better than a garage, but a good cover is well worth the expence. keeps the animals and the sun out of your boat. nothing worse than a cat pissing in your carpet.

    I use a good breathable cover first then a grey tarp on top and still allowing the first to breath. Has kept my first good tarp in great shape but the tarp gets replaced a few times a year.

    These are great for a dust cover.

    hey are very soft. But dont leave them on the boat in the wind, they will tear. Put another wallmart boat cover over it.

    Any one use a trailerable cove during towing? I was looking at the trailerable covers from west marine. They are almost 300 dollars and
    was wondering if it is even a good idea to even tow with the cover on. I have a garage to park in but want a cover to keep dirt and dbris out fwom working in the garage and to cover in the parking lot when at the hotel or camp ground while on trips

    I would say no to towing with the cover on. A little dust dirt and debris under the cover and with the wind action on the cover you now have a rolling orbital sander on the gel. Just my .02 and maybe others can chime in on their experience with covers, but I wont tow with one.
