You can get them at Walmart. They won't be form fitting, or custom, but they'll cover the inside. A 24 foot boat requires a lot of material and stitching to cover it. Or you could get a blue tarp and bungees for like 50 bucks. I recently purchased a sunbrella cover for an X9 for $600. It's well worth the price. Keeps it bone dry and is custom fitted with tower cutouts.

Yea I just got a cover from skiboatcovers.com and it was like 800$ with sunbrella fabric. Well worth it I must say. I used to use a tarp and every time it rained I had to worry about it pooling up, leaking in the boat, etc. Now it rains and I dont have to worry at all.

Yeah that is perfect but i banned ebay 4 or 5 years ago when i had over 1000 positive feedbacks and some ******* lied and said he didnt get this 871 blower i sold on there for $1800 and paypal froze my account even though the tracking number said it was delivered it was a huge ****ed up mess and i will never sign up for another ebay account again. google paypal scam... they are a huge scam!

Speaking of fleabay I just found a OEM MC cover for a 2006-up Maristar 200 (X2 without a tower).
Bought it becasue it said for 2006 X2, but when checked th part # it was no tower cutouts.
Seller gladly cancelled the transaction and refunded my $, so there are some good ones out there.
If anyone needs that cover it's probably up for sale or look up the business and call them, they have a bunch of MC parts. User name is ttam6419, it's MPEM Auto out of Pennsylvania.
Got the cover for $200 but didn't want the hassle of modifying it. He probably still ahs it.

I am going to order a sharkskin cover from Overtons soon. I like to trailer with cover on in bad weather an this seems to fit the bill and not break the bank:

ok got the cover from ebay and put it on last night here are my thoughts....
i was looking for a 1/2 decent temporary cover and thats just what i got.
it is of the same quality as the 300 deluxe covers that you get from acadamy, dicks, walmart etc.
my boat is however 25' long so you cant just go buy one at these places for my boat as they stop at 23' so for $166 shipped i'm satisfied but buy no means impressed.
the cover fits decently and will do what i need it to do for at least until the 2 year warranty expires :)
i am planning on a wake tower, and a custom cover later so for now my boats protected for $166
