need a cover

Where do i get a cover for my 2008 x14.I live in Ontario Canada.I tried 303 water repelent treatment and it helped but the cover is a little thin in places and i think I'll just break down and buy a new one.Any suggestions would be great !!

I live in Ontario as well. Got mine from skiboatcovers.com. I went for the sunbrella fabric, because it breathes. I can put it away with wet carpet and not have to worry about mold.

I'll probably be ordering one from Evolution Covers: http://www.evolutioncovers.com/

I have a factory cover that I'll be replacing. It is in very good condition if you have any interest in it to save money.

Being the season is over, you have the option of getting a custom Sunbrella cover made at a local upholstery shop.

Why that route Scott? I can't imagine anyone making a custom cover better than the one I got for my 190 from Brent at Coversports. Brent doesn't have the pattern for newer boats so I plan on buying from Evolution which appears to be as good (or better) as Brent's. These covers which don't require poles or a tent system are slick.

+1 on this. I didn't have Brent quote me, but judging by the prices I've heard on this site I feel I saved $300-$400. The guy I found did an outstanding job. YMMV

It's certainly an option is all I'm saying.

I took my boat into them in the fall, and they made the cover on my boat, they didn't make it off a pattern. I was able to get features I wanted built into my cover (got mine made so it covers my teak platform etc), and if I was to have any issues I just have to send it down the road to, as opposed to sent away for an extended period of time.
