Prostar 197 Boat Cover Replacement

I'm looking for a non-dealer option for a new Sunbrella boat cover for my 2006 Prostar 197 w/mini tower. The best looking options I've found are Baldmikes.com and skiboatcovers.com. Does anyone have opinions they would like to share about either? Baldmikes looks like I'll save about $300.

Baldmikes does not have an exact fit for my year with mini tower from Westland or Carver, but they do have a Westland exact fit for a 2005 X-7 w/Xtreme Tower. I believe the 197 and X-7 are the same hull. My boat has a X-7 Xtreme Mini Tower. Does anyone know if Xtreme Towers offered multiple towers, mini and standard size, or did they only offer a mini tower? I don't want to order that cover and find out it was not for the mini tower.

I purchased my cover through bald mikes and had a great experience. I too saved a couple hundred bucks from other sites and received free straps.

I have had 2 waterline covers from skiboatcovers.com and have been very happy with them both. First was on my 92 190 and the 2nd is on my current 2008 197.

Skiboat covers is great for a storage only cover. They are not a tight cover that can be towed with, if the need arises.

If you want a dual purpose, everything I've seen from CoverSports will have me going their for my next cover.

What is Bald Mikes? I might be interested in a nice dust cover....

Resurrecting an old thread but do these covers ratchet down just below the rub rail like the factory cover does?

Yes, but they don't have an actual ratchet. They have plastic clips/buckles. I haven't had any issues with getting it tight enough.
