Don't Let Your Boat Get Sunburnt: The Ultimate Guide to Boat Covers

Ah, boats. Those beautiful vessels that beckon us to explore. But just like any prized possession, they need protection from the elements. That's where a trusty boat cover comes in! But with all the options out there, how do you choose the right one for your watery chariot? Fear not, fellow sailor (or paddler, or jet skier!), for this guide will be your captain on this informative voyage.

Fit for a King (or Queen) of the Seas

The most important factor? Fit! An ill-fitting cover is worse than no cover at all. Imagine a baggy swimsuit – not exactly functional, right? A loose boat cover can flap in the wind, potentially scratching your boat's finish. On the other hand, a boat cover that's too tight might snag or tear. So, before you set sail on your shopping spree, carefully measure your boat's length, beam (width), and any special features like windshields or towers. At Big Sky Canvas we offer custom-fit boat covers.

Weatherproofing Your Boat

Next, consider your climate. Living in a sunny paradise? Prioritize UV-resistant fabrics to shield your boat from the sun's harsh rays. For areas with heavy snowfall, heavy-duty, snow-resistant materials are your best bet. And if your boat spends most of its time docked, breathability is key. This prevents moisture build-up and the dreaded mildew monster from taking hold.
