I got a Dowco 4 years ago. It's a good cover and fits like a glove.

I bought mine online from iboats.com, I think it's a westland. Fits great and has been very durable, construction seems top quality.

I bought the most expensive ones at Academy and they lasted me only a year on average. My boat sits outside without shade. The problem is that rainwater makes puddles on the cover and the weight of the water eventually breaks the cover. I tried to hold the cover high with different things, but haven't had much luck staying up. I bought a BPS cover this year and will see how it works for me.

Make sure to get 600 denier thickness on the tarp. Most cheap ones are 300 d and only last a year or two.

If you want want that lasts, don't go cheap. I have a 21' Center Console.

Just bought one from here, very satisfied. I'm on my third one, got 5 years out of each of them, this one is supposed to last 7. Styled-to-fit, semi-custom

Bass Pro or Overton's would be my choice. I bought one from Cabela's with a 3 year warranty. After a year, it was falling apart. They wouldn't honor the warranty and it was their brand. I went to Bass Pro and spent the same amount and it is 3 years old and still working great. I am very selective what I buy at Cabela's aince.
