My 03' X2 will be sitting on a lift this summer. I am hoping to find (or have made) a cover that has either integral or removable side skirts. Has anyone found such a cover or had one made? If you have any contact information I would appreciate any references. Thanks.

skiboatcovers.com.... they have a waterline cover specifically made for you boat. All you need to do is call, tell them the color and where you want the tiedown point to be. ie. if your boat is on a lift next to a dock, you want to have the tie down on the side so you can reach it, if your lift is on the beach, you wanna have it on the front.

*** When you order, ask for Gore-Tex thread, if you get the sunbrella material. This thread will give you years of performance, other will deteriorate in the sun.

I have not found any covers like that but this is something you might want to look at;

It is (a lot) more expensive than a regular cover, but also alot easier to use. I was quoted between 4500 and 5000, tax and installation included, for a cover that would allow for the tower to stay up.

Try Canopy Skirts. www.canopyskirts.com The most expensive for side skirts is about $1,900.

I am going to chime in again for www.skiboatcovers.com (http://www.skiboatcovers.com/) I had a Sunbrella waterline cover that covers the sides and platform from them on my '88 and it was awsome and fit tight as a drum (about $700). Look at my gallery for a picture.

Ditto--I have the same cover and it is great.

I bet you could make something like that touchless cover for maybe $1000. It seems really basic, have a canvas company sew the curtains, galv pipes on each side for weight, a motorized wench, some stainless cable and some pulleys. This is giving me ideas for my lift.

I talked to the owner of Hewitt Lifts and roll a Dock from Nicollet, Minnesota a few days ago at the Chicago Boat Show. He said they have no Problem makes covers and skirts for sides, front, and back, whatever.
The guys name is Dan Hewitt. I am sure he will be around here a few more days and probably on the road with his equipment for awhile. But check it out.
