Just got a new one for my 06. I got the top gun sunbrella cover. It came with 3 poles to hole it up off of the boat and I guess let the rain run off. I also ordered wit the waterline kit so it goes all the way down to the trailer. Pretty much just covers the entire boat.

For your boat it's $519 or $649 for the waterline cover.

For outdoor storage definitely get a Sunbrella waterline cover from www.skiboatcovers.com (http://www.skiboatcovers.com). Will give you the most available protection. Great product, service and fast shipping I would also recommend you have then sew on straps with life jacket style buckles. I think they charged me an extra $20 for this put it was well worth it for the ease of cinching down the cover. Here is a picture of my '88 with the cover installed. I had to store that boat outside and it stayed bone dry with the cover which is saying something because we get a lot of rain.

Thanks for the help guys...gonna give them a call my boat has a tower so I will need one with cut outs for it. I love the waterline cover too...keep the gel looking good after buffing it out. All the help is greatly appreciated.

They will do custom tower pockets for you. There is a guide on the site on how to measure for them.

Hi There

I had my local marine trimer make one out of Sunbrella , cost 250.00 GBP .
Fitted 10 clipon poppers around the screen , used 6 of the rear vent mount screws for poppers at the rear and had to drill 10 holes for the side poppers .
It takes a minuite to remove and refit , very tight with a couple of props , it is completly water tight.
Boat in on the water for 8 mths and at home for the rest of the year.
Had no problems with it .
I recon this is the way to go .

Good luck

Kevin
