Does anyone have a Rankin boat cover? If so how do you like it?
i had one on my last vdrive boat.
they are very nice. towable, no tent poles or side straps.
a little pricey.

Never owned one but if you want to trailer with the cover on Rankins or Evolution covers are about your only option. A little pricey is an understatement. I got a quote on one for my 190 and they wanted $900. If you are looking for a cover for storage I think the waterline covers from www.skiboatcovers.com can't be beat and while the prices are not cheap they are about $300 less than the Rankin.

I love mine. Theyre not cheap, but you get what you pay for. There is currently a group buy running on PlanetNautique that brings the pricing right into line with what BrianM mentioned for a Skiboatcover.
My boat (maristar 225 vrs) came with a Rankin cover, the previous owner bought it a year before selling the boat and he said he paid 1200. The cover is very nice and the quality is excellent. I still don't tow with mine cover on though. The best part is no support poles, its a nice tight fit.
