That is my concern too and I forgot to ask the guy about it. It will need to be able to be hoisted by a person up over the tower, or at least half of it will. The rest should just roll out over the boat.

They did have a fishing boat that a guy was getting covered just like I described. It was a top secret boat that goes to fishing shows and the guy needed it covered to keep the mystique. They had a cover almost finished on the boat and it looked like it grew over the boat.

This place I went to comes highly recommended by a lot of people I talked to and they are a big shop. They had 6 boats in the shop when I was there. They have a large number of workers and this is pretty much all they do.

I'd definitely go with the cover vs. the carport. I agree with the client, plus local ordinances may not allow it. I think it is a good idea and that price seems cheap.

my cover is not that heavy. if two people are putting it on it takes about 2 minutes and by myself closer to 5 minutes.

i take if off by myself everytime and put it in the dock box when we go out.

Full canopy seems like it could catch significant wind. I know the sunbrella covering my 24' can be a little bulky for one person stretching it and tying it down, especially on windy days. Not sure I would want to toss it over the tower too.
I find a small fan running provides plenty of air circulation to dry out and prevent mold/mildew.

The full canopy pictured does appear to fit well and access door is nice regardless vs climbing under the cover. Added advantage would be protecting high end speakers from weather damage as well as a level of "out of sight, out of mind" theft prevention.
I know my WS485s have weathered over the last 7 years to a yellowish and now replaced all 4 cones due to either surround damage or general use/abuse.

If it is done right and you have help with covering/removal, it could pay dividends.

Forgot to add that I would not tow with this cover on.

john, i would never tow with the full cover.

bsloop, we recently had 70mph straight line winds come thru and when i went up to check on the boat everything was fine and clean. i do like how it keeps the speakers clean and no bugs. ps all the boats that were not on hoist had severe damage from that storm from slamming into the docks.

We have a couple customers with covers like this and the only downfall is it is a little heavy and cumbersome to put on. Other than that it is a great idea.
