What are the best covers to get and from where. What things are crap and need to be watched out for? There seems to be a huge range of materials to choose from.
I got mine for my Sanger 215 through iboats.com & had it shipped to Australia no problems. Took just over 2 weeks. Cost about $750 + $280 shipping. That was for the Sunbrella fabric & it also covers the swim platform too. Don't get a black one if you intend to leave it outside as the heat will turn white vinyl a yellowish color. I got cadet grey as it never looks dirty and stays cool as my boat lives on an airdock. This is my cover in the pics. I have a length of 25mm conduit with a T piece on each end with a slot cut out of the T piece that clips onto the handrail over the side seating that holds the cover up in the middle.
Heres the link to your cover its only $515 http://boatcovers.iboats.com/Sanger/...t_id=933797822
