This year, my backup boat ( @Rico
's boat ) has to be moved out of the garage so I need the best cover I can find. That is why I contacted Skip Dunlap. He sells covers made by Tumacs. So how much difference can there be? A boat cover is a boat cover, right? In this case, the answer is no. The cover that Skip sent protects the boat better than any I have seen in the past.
As you can see in the photos the cover comes all the way down the sides of the boat. When I get ready for long term outdoor storage I will just need to add some bungees.
The material is also different from what I have seen before. It is a coated canvas called Aqualon . I suspect it is coated for durability and better protection but what I love about it is how easy it is to keep clean. Honestly, my boat covers are always filthy with dust and bird droppings. With the Tumacs cover all I have to do is squirt it with a hose and it looks like new.
One other feature that is worth mentioning is that the ratchet strap goes all the way around the perimeter of the cover including the swim step. When you crank this thing down your boat is really all sealed up.
Give Skip a call
