Looking to purchase a Travel Boat Cover for my ZX225.

I would like to get one that has the nice ratchet straps that hook onto the transom and you don't have to use the buckles. Anyone know where I can get one for a halfway decent price?

Thanks

I got a Dowco but had to through a dealer (Tracker/ BPS) to get it. Fits like glove, one strap on each side and two on the transom. Reasonable price for what you get. Something worth looking in to.

I always get Aurora Covers for my Bugs they don't have ratchet straps but they travel well and look good

I have an Aurora. It's been a good one. It's been a few miles on the big. Still in good shape. It has ratchet straps. Aurora has some great prices right now on a few close out deals.

Here is the link for the sale. http://www.auroracanvas.com/Specials.htm

I had one made by these guys and they did a great job.

I just got a new zx250

buying a skeeter cover was $900

I cant find anyone that makes these, so I guess I will have to get a custom one made

how much will that set me back?

The Dowco strap, is that for a Nitro or a Tracker boat? Or do they make a universal one?

Dowco has all the specs in their computer system. I just told them what I have (Tracker 190) and I got a cover that fits like a glove the Tracker name on each side. Wish I pic but I'm at work (working hard) and the price was $350.
