Has anyone on here ever ordered a boat cover from ShoreFit? If you did, how was the quality and fit? Thanks

I bought one through boat covers direct. Great cover for just covering at the house or lake. Not a great travel cover.. just FYI.

Trailering is a major concern. The one I'm looking at is 1200D Weatherproof Defense, 12 year warranty. I need a cover and the price is right as they are 75% off. About to flip a coin. eek

IMHO the only tow covers to buy are ones that are custom made for your particular boat. You'll be waisting your money if you do anything different! Warranty will probably only cover the fabric and not the workmanship.

Been there, done that!

Thanks rookyboy. The covers in question are not a perfect fit, so I'll keep looking. Their just so darn expensive and when your on a limited income, their like gold. lol

The only way to go for a travel cover is a custom fit one all of the others will not travel correctly they come loose and flap in the wind and eventually tear.

Thanks Rducky. I ordered a Sharkskin (made to fit) from Coveranything. I'll post when it gets here and see how it fits. I couldn't afford a custom cover so we'll see how the made-to-fit fits. Thanks

Dean's was recommended on TFF and really like the custom cover I got for my Triton.

I mistakenly Bought one of those cheap 500$ covers. It lasted 3 trips down the highway. The custom Skeeter is worth twice what they charge, and once again proves you get what you pay for.

If I had thought about it, I would have started a Go Fund Me boat cover account and got something nice. My budget was my loose change in my console.
