Just moved and will have to store my boat outside...for now. Any suggestions for a quality/custom boat cover? Just looked at the ones at Gander and they looked really cheap. Want to keep my boat in clean condition without breaking the bank.

Thoughts/offers?

These guys made a towable cover for my older Skeeter:

They did a great job. Not inexpensive, but very nice. They will make it to fit your model and configuration (trolling motor, boarding ladder, single/double console, etc.).

I appreciate the offer, but if you drive all the way to Jacksonville for a custom fit, I can already tell it will be out of my price range. roflmao

I've been pleased with the sharkskin boat cover I bought for mine. Certainly not hand maid but fits perfect and was under 400.00 dollars.

This looked like a good solution. Prices were reasonable but they don't carry one for my particular boat. I sent them an email to see if they could make one. We shall see but for now the hunt continues...
