  • Boat Cover

    Hey everyone. I was wondering if anybody knew of a good place to buy a reasonably priced boat cover. I have a 2001 Maristar 230 with the 2003 X30 tower on it so I believe I would be looking for a 2001-04 X30 cover. I have been stalking ebay and actually just missed out on a good deal but didn't know if anyone had any other suggestions. Any and all help would be appreciated.

        For quality, the price can be high. I have a coversports cover and would be hard pressed to own anything else. Ran me about $725 delivered (red is a $50 upcharge). This picture was taken last weekend. It is 3 years old. Brent will do covers for MC as well.

        To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

          I just wish I could get one of those but they don't have a template for my boat, those covers are awesome.

            Eastie - do you trailer w/that cover? If so, any chaffing above rubrail? I don't know if I should get a new cover (maybe snap-type) or have some type of fleece lined along the inside of mine ('10 x14v)...MC states mine is a "towable" cover--I think all that means is it won't fly off if secured properly. Heard it can rub the gel pretty good.

              Do you have any idea how these compare to the evolution covers?

                I've still been looking around. Talked to several people, and how have another question to add. As far as the material the cover is made out of, I've heard very good things about sunbrella and heard it was the way to go, but associated with this is a high price. I definitely don't want to pay money for a product with low quality. I did find some covers that were made with Sur Last fabric and want to see if any of you are familiar with these covers and your opinion on their durability/quality.

                  I have, but don't do so regularly simply so the cover can have as much longevity as possible. No chaffing on those occasions when I have done it. These are designed as trailerable covers. There is extra padding on the windshield and transom. They are drum tight. The only part that moves when underway at highway speeds is the front portion over the windshield. It does have a 70 mph breeze on it after all.

                    Pretty close to identical. Brent (coversports) and Cory (evolution) both worked for Rankin years ago. They both left and split up the business (Cory took Malibu and Brent took Correct Craft). They have both branched out on brands since then. The designs are based on the same cover system.

                      I am not familiar with Sur Last. All of my covers have been Sunbrella.

                        Digging up an old thread here. If anyone was wondering Sur last is what the current OEM MC covers are made of.

                          How long has MC been using Sur Last materials? Some on this forum have said they are not satisfied with the MC covers for various reasons. The travel cover is around $1000. I cannot imagine MC would stick with a bad cover for all of these years.
