Here are a few shots of my new full waterline cover from Skiboatcovers.com (www.skiboatcovers.com). I worked with Mike and he was great. My boat is sort of a cludge - '02 X30 with the '05 tower. He had to lay the '05 tower pattern over the standard Maristar 230 pattern. It is going to work great since I will be leaving the boat on the lift for the entire winter. Luckily I have a 40' covered slip with heaters. Yes, I will do a full winterization on the boat. I just had the carpets professionally steamed cleaned by Stanley Steamer. They look brand new.

The waterline cover I had from skiboatcovers pulled tight with a cord at the bow. Mike could put it wherever you wanted though depending if you needed to cover it on a lift, trailer or some other circumstance.

I have the same cover and he rigged it to pull tight on the right hand side. It is a great cover and these guys really work with you. I had my cover in less than 1 week. very good experience. I would HIGHLY reccomend these guys.

Nice... I am thinking about one of these for next year. Mine stays in the water in the slip most of the season. Anyone use one of these that way? Anyone make one that goes up an over the tower?

They will run you about $700 and worth every penny. Go to www.skiboatcovers.com there are prices there.

Mine was $875 shipped. I got it in about 1.5 weeks. The cover pulls tight at the rear just under the swimstep. I plan on tieing it down to my Sunstream Float Lift with bungee cords.

You have the choice of what material you want the cover made out of, and that will change the price.

Diesel, my friend, you are the big winner of the day. It took 18 responses before anyone asked that question.

The answer, millfoil from the lake that the boat sits in - well, where the boat lift sits in. Our lake is covered with it by the end of the season around the edges of the lake. You now know why I have a lift.

We got Hydrilla That leaves our trailers looking like that... We got signs everywhere to make sure that we get it off the trailer and don't transport it to another lake - the stuff is nasty and will bog you prop as well as create havoc with hydro-electric intake equipment, etc....
