Carver over tower cover - anyone have one?

Hey TT.....now that my boat sits outside all the time, looking for a way to protect everything (tower & platform) from the elements here in So Cal......our one day of rain and sun rest of year.

Anyone try one of these?
They seem pretty good and cheaper than I expected.....

looks pretty slick, you dont even have to tent it from rain if its sitting over the tower already...

Looks Great!

Where did you purchase that cover?
How much?
Does it cover the swim platform?

My thoughts exactly.

Haven’t bought yet, thats one of their stock images.
And yes they claim it will cover a platform of up to 30”.

They make in a few different fabrics which change price significantly.
For my x45, their Sunbrella version is about $1200 with a 7 year warranty.
Then they have their own proprietary fabric with a 5 year warranty for about $600, which makes it a no brainer.

Here is their url to see what fits your boat:

They dont sell direct, so they have a list of resellers on their site.
These guys look like the best price so far for mine:

Think im going to order.
Will let you know.

I donít have that particular brand, but I do have an over the tower cover. I will say this, I will never go back to a traditional cover again. Itís a bit of a pain to put on by yourself. It does an amazing job of keeping the boat dry in the rain.

Iíd make sure the sides go all the way down to where the hull goes inward to keep sun off side gel coat. Watering cover is what some call it.
