    Default boat storage covers

    hey new here and need some help finding a place that can make me a cover for my boat that will stand up to the winds in the valley. I have also considered a 'portable' garage like ShelterLogic or something. Do you guys have a suggestion of which would be better and a place to have one made for my boat if I go that direction. Also want to know if anyone else has an 18ft Hewescraft Sportsman with an outboard. I just bought mine and need to know how it will run on the smaller rivers like Little Su.

    Camouflage it with a blue tarp like everyone else.

    Yep. Make yourself a basic "saw horse" type frame and bungie one of the heavy duty silver tarps down. Works very well for me.

    My 18' Custom made cover was $1000-. Expensive yes, worth it, absolutely.
    He used some very heavy material (rubber like) thast is used in the Comm. fishing Ind., it came down over 1/2 way to cover the sides with bungee and hooks every 18" all the way around. The sucker was tough! Kept all the dust and rain out when running the roads, also prying eyes off your gear if you had to stop along the way and run into a store or what not. Kept the interior clean, gear dry, a great investment in my mind.
    Not a great pic, but the cover is visible on the boat.
