Bionic Man Finally found a photo of my old boat and Bald Mike cover. Worked great, even for towing.

tangler It also depends on how you want to use the cover. I'll never have mine on on the highway. It's just for Winter and potential down-pours during fishing trips while trailered.

Mine was $471 shipped for 16' boat, BTW.

Brutal! But you will get what you pay for. If you dont do a lot of high mileage interstate trips the cheaper may be the way to go. If that cover aint perfect it will tear itself to pieces quickly on long trips-

TthePikester If any of you guys want to see one before deciding let me know and I'll show you mine for the workmanship.

Mikie, price your top today 8 years later...they got expensive all hell!
Mine was almost double that. It came with the boat. So, I'm sure the dealer added "a little" mark-up. When I contacted Paul's about a storage cover and a bimini top I was shocked at their pricing. Nice covers. But, after the recent hail damage; I'll be buying mine from Boatcovers.com for sure! I can buy two for the price of one Paul's.

TthePikester Tang,I think you'll be happy with it. One tip I do, I have a couple small pieces of indoor/outdoor carpet I put on those sharper 2 edges on the back transom under the cover. Even though the top is extra thick, padded in those spots I don't want to risk what happened to Snagged.

Decision time.
Thanks guys.

tangler I ordered a WeatherMax from Boatcovers.com yesterday. Thanks for the info Tony, was very helpful.

I'll be ordering straps on Amazon after the cover arrives, and probably support poles as well after I see how it fits. Boatcovers.com did not have competitive pricing on those accessories.
