Letís say if you buy a lift for say $4300 used including a side curtain plus a mooring cover. If your boat is in good shape the Touchless Cover will keep out the driving rain and damaging sun as well as birds and are a theft deterrent. With your used lift you have to still put the manual cover on to keep the sun and rain out and bird mess and even with an extended canopy, they still don't cover your entire boat, leaving it exposed to the harsh elements. The sun will damage your boat slow until itís time to re due the gel coat $$$$ and thatís very pricy. Boats are very expensive to just let wither away.
With a Touchless Cover, you can leave it on your lift all season rather than removing it. The Touchless Cover will pay for itself when you trade it in and nice boats sell fast at top price. I have seen this time and time again. Remember that you pay for what you get and our Touchless Covers will last for many many more years than a canopy due to the type of high end materials we use. If you want to keep your boat in pristine shape, this might be the answer. Get on and off the water fast, plus keep everything dry plus there is an area to hang up your vests to dry, so no carrying them to the house or putting them in a storage compartment to mildew. This cover ventilates very well.
Enjoy the upcoming season and ski/ board well
