Well the factory cover on my 16ft Crestliner 1600 Fish Hawk is pretty much shot. I got seven years out of it. Had it resewn last season but I think it's on it's final leg. The thing I liked about the factory cover is that it is tongue/groove. My boat has a lip around it that plastic ridges on the cover slide into so no tiedown straps are necessary. Putting it on is very simple/quick. I called my local Crestliner dealer and they want $600+ for a factory replacement cover. OUCH!
Anyway I did some searching on the net for the best cover for my boat and found a WeatherMax Cover. Can't recall the materials it was constructed of but it was rated as one of the better ones out there. Cost around $450.
Any other suggestions on a quality cover that is trailerable? My boat is stored indoor for the winter months but is parked outside the house during the fishing season.
Still tossing around the idea of the factory replacement cover as well.

In the summer I purchased a cover for my smaller boat (21' SeaRay)that is trailerable and inexpensive.
It is on the boat now at the shore and stayed outside since I do not use it much.
Last week I was down to check the house and the cover looks like the day I put it on.
I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone and at the cost even if I get 2 years out of it it still ends up being cheaper than buying poly tarps to cover it every winter.
They list gray but also have red, blue and green.

Good Luck

Check with Stout Canvas Products in Monroeton, 570-265-5548.

She made a custom cover a few years back for my Model 1654 Grizzly with 60/40 Jet. Much better than any commercial covers and very competitive on price.
I believe I paid $350 for the cover.
