Well, after all of your input and recommendations, I decided to go with skiboatcovers.com and the cover came in late yesterday. All I have done is pull it out of the box and look at it, but will be putting it on the boat today. I will post up some pics for anyone who may be in the market. We got it with the drop down sides skirts to help keep the sun off of it and I think it will be money well spent. I cannot say enough about the service from these guys. They definitely made this a pleasant transaction. Thanks to everyone for your help in this decision!

Any pics yet??? What is the quality of the material used? Are they a rachet style tiedown? Is it a snug fit???

Skiboatcovers.com has 3 different material types. The highest grade being Sunbrella. They do not use a ratchet, but do have a cinch cord. I would not recommend them for towing, but they are nice storage covers... especially the waterline covers. Here is mine on my old boat.

Which cover did you have originally that ripped?

Yes, I would like to see pics. In the market for a new cover next year. Leaning towards them....

I will have the pics up tomorrow. The cover that I had that ripped was the one the boat came with from MC and it was tearing within two years. I got the sunbrella material and it appears to be of solid quality. I am unsure of the fit at this point after I put it on the boat today. I have sent some questions to Skiboatcovers to clarify if I did everything correctly or not. It is snug around where it cinches and tightens up. My area of concern is in the bow section as it is loose in my opinion. I do not think I will trailer with this cover but as far as storage, once I get it a bit tighter, I think it will do just fine. Again, pics will be up tomorrow so you can make your own conclusions and/or give me advice on how to get it right. I will post what I hear back from the sbc.com as well as soon as I hear from them.

Skiboatcovers is great. Here is a custom extended mooring cover I had them make for my X-star to prevent any significant UV light exposure. We use it to cover the boat in the boat house as well. Perfect fit. I agree that they offer excellent service and quality.

Nice, that's what I'm looking for. Something to keep the sun off the boat on the lift!

That looks like a good heavy duty cover.

Has anyone bought a cover that covers everything, even the tower? I am thinking about something like this for long-term storage.

Thanks, David Sword

I personally do not have one, but a neighbor of mine had one made that covers the tower to ground and it was sweet, but it was expensive. I heard $1200.

Not knowing where you are located, TT member DBR, in Raleigh, NC http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/member.php?u=6110, had one made to cover everything including the tower. You may try contacting him. He even posted a picture of it on TT,
