Help: Need A New Boat Cover

My Mastercraft boat cover gave up the ghost today while I was towing my boat to its winter storage area. The best I can tell is it's the original cover, I bought the boat this past summer. The boat is a 2001 Prostar 209. The cover is trashed and I am going to buy a good aftermarket cover for it. Does anyone have any good recommendations of where to go? Also what to look for or avoid? I would like a cover that is trailerable and won't blow off on the highway.

Thanks!
Joe

Thank you! Is the waterline fit worth the extra money in your opinion? The original wasn't waterline fit.

Thanks!

I recently bought a waterline cover from skiboatcovers.com and it is by far the best cover have every had. I went with weathermax after talking with the owner and added two vents. I really like how it covers my teak platform.

Thanks, that's good info! I was curious about material types. Does your waterline cover stay snug when towing the boat at highway speeds?

Woody, I have not towed with it since I leave my boat on a lift. He does sell the straps. I think If I were to two with the cover I would go with Sunbrella since a little softer.

Yep. Had a waterline cover on our X25 from them. Very high quality and worth the cost.

For the most part my boat is only towed twice a year. Once to winter storage and once back to the lake in the spring, about 35 miles each way. When at the lake for the season I keep it on the trailer and on location when not in use. We get a lot of sun here in Colorado so I definitely want to maximize protection while parked on the trailer outside all summer.

skiboatcovers.com make great covers. Get a grey cover, not black, to keep the temps down in the boat.
