Built To Speck Trailering & Storage Boat Covers
For the boat owner who is serious about protecting his investment…
We custom fabricate durable, long-lasting covers that are excellent for travel, mooring and storage. We specialize in designing and fabricating the perfect fit for your boat. We weld our material to create the strongest bond when constructing the base structure of your cover. We sew in padded reinforcements at key stress points, which provide for a very durable cover.
Thousands have called on us for custom covers. We’re a name that has been around well over a hundred years and our craftsmanship and high-quality products prove why we will continue to be around.
Travel and Storage Covers
Traditional travel and storage covers are full size covers protecting your boat when not in use. Just as the name implies, they’re used to protect your boat during travel or while it’s being stored on land. Due to the variety of boats having different features and in different sizes, we’ll have a few simple questions for you to help us better understand your needs. Call or stop in our showroom and we’ll provide you with a quote. It’s that simple!
You can expect the following questions to be asked:
- How would you like your cover propped up? We can use mooring poles (similar to tent poles) or we can drill in sockets and install fiberglass bows across the width. Two very effective ways to help water run off the cover and prevent pooling and sagging.
- Any areas for special fitting? (Walk-through windshield, one or two fitted windshields, trolling motor, etc.)
- Would you like boat vents installed in the cover (helps with air circulation)?
- Would you like the cover to extend over your main motor and/or kicker motor? Would you like a separate cover for your motor(s)?
Our base pricing includes loops and rope for a tie-down feature (perfect for travel and storage!), mooring poles, lined rub points and we’ll use Aqualon Mist Grey for fabric. The Aqualon fabric is a two-ply polyester duck, double coated with a pigmented vinyl resin on the topside and a durable water resistant finish on the underside. It remains flexible in all climates, the color will not rub off, nor crack, peel or harden. Aqualon is resistant to mildew, abrasion, water penetration, most petroleum products, UV rays and a wide range of acid and alkaline products. For an additional charge, we can special order Aqualon in another color or use Sunbrella marine fabric.
Due to the fabricated custom fit, we must have your boat trailered to our shop. Typically, you can drop your boat off on a Monday and pick it up on Friday (that’s assuming we’re not backlogged; it is always best to call in advance and we encourage you to book early during peak seasons). You can feel at ease with your boat left at our shop, we keep it securely inside for the duration of its stay. Our bays are only so large and we are limited to the size of boat kept inside; maximum size 26’ length x 11’ height x 11’6” width.
