Best Boat Cover?

I need to get a new cover for my 01 X-Star and want to make a smart purchase. The current cover is equipped with snaps that correspond to snaps attached to the underside of the rub rail. I'll have these added by a local shop once I've purchased a new cover.

Any advice on the best current cover for a boat?

Thanks,

Chris

Find a reputable upholstery company and get one to make it for you.

I second that but would add find a canvas boat cover company. My brother has a big boat and he gets amazing canvas work done by his local shop. I have visited a place close to me here in the Twin Cities and got a tour of their shop and their finished boats. Their work was amazing.

Incomplete statement on my part. On the malibu forums it's the de facto choice.

I personally wouldn't buy any premade cover after getting a custom made. The fit difference is night and day.

That was what I noticed when I toured the shop I visited. The covers were snug and look like they grew over the boats. And when I asked about getting a cover that would totally protect the boat from the sun, especially when on the trailer they said that was absolutely no problem.
