WHAT IS A BOAT COVER?
A boat cover is a protective cover that is designed to shield your boat from the elements and prevent damage from exposure to the sun, wind, rain, and other environmental factors.
WHAT TYPES OF BOAT COVERS ARE AVAILABLE?
There are a wide variety of boat covers available, including custom-fit covers, universal covers, and specialty covers designed for specific types of boats, such as pontoon boats or fishing boats.
A custom-fit boat cover is a cover that is specifically designed to fit your boat's exact dimensions and specifications. These covers provide a perfect fit and maximum protection for your boat while taking into account additional structures that might be installed on your boat, like swim platforms or rails.
A universal boat cover is a cover that is designed to fit a specific boat style within a range of sizes. Knowing your boat’s style, beam width, and centerline length will help you to select a universal boat cover that provides the closest fit for your boat. These covers are often less expensive than custom-fit covers but may not provide as snug a fit or quite as much protection.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING A BOAT COVER?
Using a boat cover can provide a number of benefits, including protecting your boat from damage, reducing the need for frequent cleaning and maintenance, and helping to maintain its resale value.
WHAT MATERIALS ARE BOAT COVERS MADE FROM?
Boat covers can be made from a variety of materials, including polyester, canvas, vinyl, and specialty fabrics such as Sunbrella®, the gold standard in marine canvas. Each material has its own unique properties and advantages, such as weather resistance, durability, and UV protection so it’s important to consider your fabric options carefully before selecting a boat cover.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT BOAT COVER FOR YOUR BOAT?
Choosing the right boat cover for your boat will depend on a variety of factors, including the size and shape of your boat, the climate in your area, and your personal preferences and budget. It is important to select a cover that fits your boat properly and provides adequate protection.
HOW DO YOU CARE FOR A BOAT COVER?
Proper care and maintenance of your boat cover can help to prolong its lifespan and ensure that it provides maximum protection for your boat. This may include regular cleaning, spot-treating stains or mildew, and storing the cover properly when not in use. You can also take good care of your cover by making sure it’s properly stretched across your boat when in use, supported from beneath, and cinched tight. This will help to prevent water pooling which can add unnecessary weight to your cover.
HOW LONG DO BOAT COVERS TYPICALLY LAST?
The lifespan of a boat cover can vary depending on a number of factors, such as the quality of the materials, the frequency of use, and the level of care and maintenance. A well-made boat cover that is properly cared for can last for several years or more.
