Yea i guess I will have to see how mine holds up. Maybe we should have upgraded to goretex thread. Also, from what I hear they are very reasonable. Maybe try calling them to see if they will at least rectify the front pole issue.

I went goretex threads.

The stitching on the cover is fine and it does its job as a cover no doubt. But the seat discoloring has me annoyed. Oh well. Nothing you can do about it. Ill end up restitching the front pole as im not mailing off the cover to get that fixed...

Hearing about the staining has me worried about getting a new cover. I wish I could afford one of the touchless covers for my boat/dock.

Yea i dont know what it is... its different than the issue some of use had with the black MC covers.

ill take some pics of it tonight. Ive been looking at that Totally Awesome cleaner and bought some, so we will see if that helps clean it up.

Yea so far I have seen no discoloration in my sunbrella onto any part of the boat. And it has been wet here since i got it. I will keep an eye out.

Totally Awesome should do the trick. It cleaned my vinyl right up from last year.

My burgundy sunbrella cover from skiboatcovers.com, has held up well and no colour transfer.

I also went with the ski boat cover (sunbrella, gortex thread), and was similarly disappointed. After a year I have discoloration on the seats and the cover has stretched significantly. Considering what I paid for the cover I expected better.

Just put my new skiboatcover on today.
Overall, it looks well made, but I am not liking how it fits in the back corners. Hopefully a few wet dry cycles will get it to fit better.

Lift your rear pole up, should take the slack out
