Mooring Covers are designed to used while the boat is in the water, on the hoist or on the trailer. They are taller than a towing cover, made to take heavy rain storms without letting water puddle on the cover.

Mooring covers can be used for storage, but not for towing. If you use a mooring cover during the winter, you must brush the snow off of it after every snow storm.

Please look in the Cover Care section
for more information about winter storage.

 


 

Pontoon Playpen Cover is the same as a Mooring cover, but does not cover the front deck.

Bow Cover and Cockpit Combination

 

Back to Top



 

Bow Cover is used to cover the open bow area of a boat. They are used while underway, a quick cover while at the dock and for towing.


Bow Covers are not good for storage and winter snow. The bow cover does not protect the entire area from ultra-violet light that should be covered during storage.

Cockpit Cover is used to cover the cockpit area of a boat. They are used for a quick cover while at the dock and for towing.


Cockpit Covers are not the best for storage. The cockpit cover does not protect the entire area from ultra-violet light that should be covered during storage.

 


A big reminder about Tops and Enclosures

The more features you add, the heavier it gets and the more it costs to fabricate.
. . . bigger top, two tops, camper top, screens, windows, privacy covers, zippers, velcro . . .
If you want it easy to handle and low cost, keep it simple and light weight.
Take some time to consider exactly which options you really need and will use.
Have a look in the Price list for options.
