I bought guide pole covers from MC, but they turned out to be too small (diameter). I checked around, and nobody has guide pole covers that will fit my guide poles, so I'm thinking of making them. Right now, they look really trashy. I put duct tape around the ends to keep them from flying off...:o

The old ones, and the new ones I couldn't use, were nylon. I was thinking about using Sunbrella fabric, but wanted opinions

Anybody else gone down this path? I could make them really simple, or really complex (screen printed or embroidered with MC script...)

Thoughts?

I had a set of Sunbrella covers made. I went the easy route and just took the old covers off and used them as a pattern. The local cover guy charged me $20 for the fabric and labor to sew them. Now, I am just looking for some 2" insulation... not much around here in SoCal. I am going to need to order it off the internet, I think.

Were these for your new boat? I saw the CMC covers on your new boat. Are you changing them out?

My guide poles have 3" insulation, that's why I'm making my own...or having them made.

Yeah, I am changing them out. The stainless rubrail screws tore up the covers on the CMC ones they were made of really thin nylon.

Brenda at In-Tow used to sell them on her site but I don't see them there anymore. You might want to give her a call and see if she still can make them or get them for you.

Brenda/In-Tow makes arguably the best slalom ropes and handles out there. She sells a few other things as well. Her site isn't much to look at but her handles are great http://www.jlbmfg.com/

Seattle Fabric Company sells sunbrella by the yard much cheaper than you'll be charged by a fabric company just in case you need it. I bought some to have some repairs done to my cover and my use the leftover to have this done to my guide pads.

Seattle Fabric: $20.50/yd.

Sailrite: $17.75/yd.

Not much difference, but Sailrite has thread, binding tape, and instructions as well...

As I looked into it further, both companies have thread, binding tape, etc...
