Anyone have any recommendations for a boat cover. Any luck with any of the covers that are on the shelf at local sporting good stores.

Style, model and MFG of boat?

If boat stored outside, a custom fitted/built cover is a must.

If boat is inside and you just want to keep the dust off a off the shelf cover should work.

Doesn't say where you are located. VS Carpeting in Sanger is doing a custom cover for my boat.

Custom cover is great for trailing. Keeps the c-r-a-p out and from people flicking cig butts in boat.

Dallas Manufacturing makes them. I had one of their's and it held up well. Good warranty...I know!! Can't buy from them as they outsource them. I bought mine off Ebay for $150 for my CC. At that time the cover had a 7 yr. warranty which was great, and that was a few years ago. My SIL used my rig and somehow he torn it up!!

I think I’m fixing to buy one from boat covers direct, they seem to be well made and have good reviews

I bought the one I use from them. Now it’s not a trailering cover. Just a cover for use while parked. Well made though! I like it!

Yep, look here... Aurora's are a little bit more expensive but worth it in the long run... Dan

Nothing better than a handmade fitted tarp.
