I have a 1989 17' Montauk and I'm in the market for a cover for the center console. Any info someone might have on a source for good fitting cover would be a great help. Thanks in advance for help anyone can provide.

I would not trust the mills for trailing. Just sitting at the dock is another thing. Also I never cared for the two separate covers, one for the RPS, the other for the console. We had a custom console and RPS cover that was one piece made for our 1984 Montauk for half the price of the two Mills covers. It was one piece and covered from the front cooler, over the console, and to the back of the RPS. It fastened with 4 quick lock snaps and trailed like a dream (thousands of miles). We had extra zippers put on to the port side t access the console door with the cover on. Here are some pictures.

Here is who made it. They may still have the patterns.

Honestly, if you can find a good local canvas shop you would be better off in my opinion than mills. My $.02

Thanks for the info and the pics. Both are a big help. I was just having a discussion with my neighbor over the cost of a console cover and that I should probably look into having something custom made. Specifically to include covering the RPS. I will give the folks in Canada a call. Thanks again (and beautiful boat by the way)

Aaron
