2006 X1 boat cover under $1000?

Are there any decent covers out there for less than $1000?

Brent at Coversports or Cory at evo can make you a custom one for less than 1000. Brent made mine. It took awhile to arrive but it's awesome. He has your pattern no doubt. If you don't need the cover yesterday that's what I'd do. You should get a winter discount now too. I ordered mine last winter. 23' cover for about $850.

Plenty of folks will be along to +1 this soon.

Iboats.com has Westland exact fit covers that have the swim platform extension option. Always have sales and you can get one easily for under 1000.

If you tow at all, for couple hundred more a cover from Evolutioncovers will be worth every penny

Evolution covers gets my vote. Awesome cover for towing and mooring and great customer service too.

Question- I don't know much about the fabrics available for covers- what's going to work best for a waterproof cover? We get rain out here and I don't have a garage for my boat, so I need something waterproof. I have no problem covering it with a tarp (that's what I'm doing now), but it'd be nice to have something with a little cleaner look. Boat is an 03 X30.

A past fabricator so please take no offense to anything I say. First you will get what you pay for. The tighter the fit and the more options the more it will cost. To address the fabric, an acrylic fabric is a good choice for water resistance vs. breath-ability. Acrylic fabric is made by many companies not just Sunbrella, however, that is the most widely known. Top Gun is used a lot in the Northwest it is an acrylic coated polyester not very breathable but will go down the highway at 80 mph. Odyssey is a lighter fabric great water resistance and at 6.5 oz easy to manage.
Depending on who is fabricating the cover they will have their favorites to work with. The fabrics above all have great UV stability. One thing to keep in mind is to add reinforcement at chafe points and if you want to keep the cover outside look for a UV stable thread. Fabricators can use a thread that will now outlast the cloth on the cover making it so seams ever fail.

I've bought from both Cory at Evolution and Brent at Coversports. Great experience with each of them. Cory has newer patterns than Brent, including the X-14DD with ZFT-3, which is what I just bought. Both were well under $1K.
