View Full Version : Boat cover?

01-02-2008, 08:58 AM

I own PS 190 1995.
Original cover did tear in three parts, so I do need a new cover.
What would you recommend?

Search at Bart's did not give anything reasonable, but Overton's did: http://www.overtons.com/modperl/boatcover/bc_finder.cgi?r=fbc&year=1995&make=MASTERCRAFT&model=190%20PRO%20STAR,%20DOESN'T%20COVER%20SWIM%2 0PLATFORM%20I/B

What is the original MC uses?

www.skiboatcovers.com Great covers. If it is stored outside go with a waterline version.

Ditto on what Brian M said. Click here (http://www.tmcowners.com/photopost/data/500/medium/boat_cover_with_skirts.jpg) to see a photo of the one we had made for our 2001 X-5 (same hull as your boat). If you go this route consider the gortex thread upgrade (low cost, big benefit IMHO).

Might consider having one custom made at the local upholstry shop. I did, and it has extra long sides to protect the metal flake and even built in a swim platform cover incorporated. The last bit of advice would be, don't go cheap. You will usually get what you pay for in a cover.

Hard to beat 20 dollars a year. I guess that is why we have these threads. Mine was over 800.00 and i'll bet it lasts 5-7 years even w/ stored inside in the winter. I have another boat w/ the same custom cover stored outside year round and after 4 years it is showing wear.

I have seen some OEM covers from time to time on ebay. Right now there is a replacement cover for your boat:

I second this also.

As long as you get Sunbrella fabric, gore-tex thread and give it a little annual care, it will last you for years.





I had a sunbrella cover for my Boston Whaler that lasted me 13 years sitting outside 24/7. It probably would have lasted longer, if I would have had a couple more reinforcements put in for the steering knob and the corner of the console.

I have been very happy with my MasterCraft cover. It fits perfect around my tower and is great for trailering or mooring. I really like the ratcheting mechanism that sinches it down from the back making it fit like a drum. It repels water great and of course says MasterCraft across the windshield. The black cover matches my boat great also.
