									Boat Covers - Your Foremost Concern For New Boat


So you have ultimately bought the boat of your dreams, but the dreams have turn out to be a nightmare,
when you realize months later that your precious possession isn't looking that classy as when you initially
bought it. So what do you think went wrong; did you make a poor investment or could it be that the type of
boat covers you bought to protect it was a poor option?



The importance of buying a good boat cover to protect your boat cannot be compromised if you want your
boat to look its best, and you will find a lot of factors you really need to think about when buying one.



It is essential to make sure that while water inside your boat can escape, no water should be able to enter the
boat, as which will definitely cause terrible damage. Besides water, the UV rays from the sun may be a
major source of damage. Furthermore, a boat cover should cover the whole boat and if there are gaps, then
you're wasting your time, by buying a cover that does not fit correctly.



This is where customized covers come in. Although they'll definitely cost more, they're tailor-made for your
boat and will serve the purpose they're designed for, which is to protect it.



The key benefit of custom boat covers is that they should fit your boat flawlessly. This helps to keep out
water, dust and dirt, and sometimes even rodents, so gaps are actually something you don't wish to have to
deal with. By having the cover tailor made, you have the choice of color you want and the flexibility to
have it customized, which would otherwise not be possible if you bought it from a shop.



Obviously the only disadvantage that makes some people think twice will be the high price.


In the case of semi-custom covers, they tend to be either a little large or a slightly too small. While being
small is really a particular problem, being extra large is also not ideal as you need to fold up or tuck in the
excess, which may be difficult and time consuming. Added to that's the fact that it looks messy, and the
folds can trap moisture, resulting in the growth of mold and mildew.



Ultimately whatever you purchase, it's a major expense and one should make sure to get a good warranty.



Overall, while buying a tailor-made boat cover is simple, the problem arises whenever you need to select
between the numerous kinds of canvas and plastics that are obtainable, so take your time. Ask questions and
don't be in too much of a rush, just because you can't wait to get on that boat and sail away!
