Quality Boat Cover suggestions

I'm in need of a good quality cover asap. Hoping for a reasonably priced one, but with the work I've put in cleaning the seats, quality is my number 1.

02 X Star.

Thanks!

skiboatcovers.com is where I got mine. Wherever you go, make sure you get the sunbrella fabric. Definitely worth the extra cost. Totally waterproof, but still breathes.

This is what mine looks like. Just checked their site. Your's would be $869.00 in Sunbrella. Nice, durable covers. Dual layers at stress points, like around the windshield frame and around the tower legs.

Thanks!
If you are in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul I know a great cover and upholstery shop in the area. I had them make a new cover last year and they re-did all my upholstery this winter. Great quality and good prices.

That looks great. Who did the work?

If you want a trailerable cover, check out evolution or coversports (see picture below). For a good cover that doesn't need to be kept on at 70 mph on the highway, I have seen plenty of good reports about skiboatcovers.com. Sunbrella is my preference.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

My new cover from skiboatcovers.com just arrived today. Looks great, but one small problem, they forgot to ship the support poles. A quick call got a sincere apology and the poles should arrive Friday.
I will try to get a picture of the cover on the boat this weekend.
