Default Boat Cover Fit

First off, thanks to anyone providing a reply.

I have a 2000 1900SR and have been trying to research a great trailerable cover. My question to all the other Maxum owners out there has to do with fit. Custom vice semi custom fit. I can get a cover from taylor made, westland, etc, but it is hard to tell which will fit best on my boat for the best price. Obviously, a custom cover would seem to fit best, but if I can get a semi-custom that fits great for less money that is preferrable. So...what do you have for a cover and how does it fit (complaints and recommendations are appreciated).

-Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,

I got my cover from here: http://www.boatcoversdirect.com/ Mine is a "custom" cover, cut and sized specifically for my model boat. They have one for yours too.

Several different fabrics available at different price points.

In my opinion though I'm not convinced that any cover is really "trailerable" - at least at higher speeds. Even though they might stay on the boat the covers just do not fit tightly enough to keep them from flapping around. If they do flap then they will wear quickly at the stress and hard points; like on the windshield frame.

If I just had to have the boat covered while towing at highway speeds I would use a mooring cover instead.

Good luck,

Dan

Jeremy,

I bought a Semi Custom Westland Outdura and am pretty pleased with the fit. See photos. It is supposed to be ok to trailer with but if I do trailer it, I plan to put a strap around the entire boat just fore and aft of the windscreen to prevent ballooning. As I recall, it was advertised as a 700.00 cover but was on sale for about 250.00. Good luck.

Thanks for the info guys. It's greatly appreciate. I already have a set of mooring covers for actually trailering, but they are not at all waterproof. The tips have been very helpful.
