I have a cover for my rig it's under carport cover but, the dang cover is a 'generic' 18'. Good one, warranty for 7 years but, doesn't cover it or go on as easy as it should. The dang TM creates huge bulge.
What did ya'll do ?
thanks
God Bless

I'd say $400-$500 minimum for a quality custom


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

Lee, I had Dallas Canvas do mine (Farmers Branch). Was $1,200. If all your concerned about is the bulge and you keep it under carport, I would just buy an off-the-shelf one every 10 years for about $150 a pop. Just my $.02.


I approve of this message.

$1,200 OUCH! roflmao I may just have to live with the 'bulge'. Have never seen a custom fit cover on a bass boat, so I guess that they all have that for the TM.
Thanks pardner,
God Bless

I think Nolan's makes the best custom cover in dfw.



I hate photobucket.

QUESTION: Don't factory fit covers cover the outboard engine as well? I have an engine cover but, it is a separate 'bag'. I think an all 'one piece' cover would be ideal that not only covers the boat and motor but the steering arms and cables to the engine being all sewn together.
Wrong ?
God Bless

I have a cover from a company out of SC that was designed for my Bass Cat Pantera Classic. It does have a motor cover but unfortunately covering the motor leaves a gap so after the wasp's moved in I stopped covering the motor and cinched it down to keep bugs and critters out.

It's canvas and I have extended its life by applying water repellent. Also I get foam pipe insulation from Lowes to cover sharp points like top of windscreens or trolling motor blades to prevent sharp wear spots.

I paid $250 for the cover and its lasted me 5 years I guess...

Lee there is a small shop down the street from me that does the work for some of these shops in keller/NRH area. They do exceptional work and are local. You can drop your boat off and they will custom make with top grade canvas and straps. Let me know and I can give you there number. Looking at anywhere between 400.00-600.00 avg. thanks
