Best Boat Cover


Recommended Posts

Looking for best boat cover manufacturer/material for a 2007 Sunesta 254 with swim platform.  Had a custom made cover for my 2001 196 SSI and really did like it.  I bought the boat used out of Fayetteville AR.  Do not have a clue who made the cover but it was a tight fit with two support poles, it had drawstring rope around bottom with quick disconnect straps that wrapped around trailer rail back to cover.  Totally weatherproof.  Looking to find a similar cover. Attached picture of what I had before below.

I don't know about best, but I have used Vortex Direct many times in the past and the covers are very reasonable, very good, very waterproof, and never have given me any issues except when I hadn't yet figured out the necessity of support poles. They also honor their warranty...as I found out when a cover ripped on me because I didn't use support poles and something sharp poking up in my boat ripped it...Totally my fault and yet they sent me a brand new cover for free which worked perfect once I added custom vented support poles.

Find a local canvas shop in the area. Winter time is the best time since they're normally not busy. Specify a ratch strap system around the base, Felt lining around the base, White on the inside. This one had 3 posts but I found the front one put to much stress on the bow so I quit using it. It also had 3 vents but I found that all tht did was allow air to flow throught the boat but also all the road grim with it. So I had them sewed up except the center on which I had them put a cover over it to keep the dirt out while driving. 

This one was a vinyl covered canvas, real strong never had problem. It did have a lot of miles on it IL, WI, MO, KY, TN, MI, OK, TX, AZ and UT.

 

This was taken in Durango, CO on our way to Lake Powell.

Yep that is exactly what I am looking for except with support poles.  This is a pic of the one I had on old boat
