I need a new Sunbrella boat cover for my 2000 Supra Launch. Anyone bought a Covermate Exact Fit from Overton's? Comments on the fit & finish? I can get one for $523 with their periodic 20% off code, seems like a good deal if they are decent quality. I'm looking at close to $700 for a local upholstery shop to make one.

I had a custom two piece cover made for my Saltare at a local shop. They charged $700, using Sunbrella material. Mine is 7 years old and still fine other than a little fading. It needs to be treated every couple years to repel water, I use some Starbrite product for teflon every year or two. I use it every day for 3-4 weeks out of the year when the boat is on the water. Occasionally a few other times throughout the year. Normally the boat stays in the yard and I just use a tarp tented high so no water pools or can soak through. Pro-tip for us cheap guys without a suitable garage or carport, leave fenders or buoy balls out between the boat and tarp, it allows plenty of air circulation.

I find it very strange that I can't find a single review of these covers anywhere on the 'net. They're not returnable or refundable, so I'd really like to read something positive before I drop that much money sight-unseen.

I talked to someone that bought one from overtones before I bought my cover last year. They said the fit on their Malibu was terrible. I ended up buying from skiboatcovers.com. Iím very happy with my new cover. You can either spend 500 once then 700 two years down road because your not happy or spend 700 once. This one was more than 700 but I canít fit my 24í boat in a garage.

As it turns out, Overton's, iboats, and many others are reselling Westland covers. I found a couple good reviews of the exact fit covers, and went ahead and bought one from www.boatcoversdirect.com. The folks at BCD were more knowledgeable on the phone, more transparent on their website, and came very close to Overton's price with their periodic 20% discount code. It showed up in a week, seems to be made well, and fits great. Here are some pics. The color is charcoal tweed. I still need to trim the tiedown straps. $530 for a custom fit Sunbrella cover is hard to beat. I got two local quotes, and both were around $1100.

I almost went with that same color on my cover. Now I wish I had.

Looks Good.
