I'm in the market to buy a travel cover for my '98 BassCat Pantera Classic and have gotten several quotes from companies that have been recommended in the past from TFF. My boat is stored mostly under a car port, but is in the driveway on weekends when I fish. Here are a few of the materials that have been quoted on. Which is best for this Texas heat and for traveling and lasts a long time?

Coastguard Marine Acrylic - $900
Sunbrella - $850
Seaspray Polyester - $750
Aqualon - $700

The companies I've called are Nolan's Tops, American Canvas, and Aurora Canvas.

If you have any other recommendations for places to call, I'd appreciate it!

My boat also stored under a carport. Have had my custom fit Sunbrella cover for 4 years. No wear, no mildew growth in boat, lightweight, easy on/off install.

Bought it here....[img]http://baldmikes.com/[/img]

Snagged a custom fit Sunbrella for my skeeter zx200 from iboats/Westland for $364. Was a ready made (I guess someone ordered and didn't pick up) in the color I wanted so I got it. 10 year warranty, vented pole, tie down straps, outboard cover, etc.

You got a great deal joebass! Mine is proving to be more difficult since it is older.
