Canvas question... I am looking for a mooring cover for my 1970 13' whaler to keep the weather fromm wreaking havock on my fresh varnish job. I know that while the correct source would be to get a cover from the Mills folks, the price they quoted was about what I paid for the hull ($550). I am sure they make an excellent cover but I am looking for something in the $100 range that will last a couple of seasons. Does anyone out there have a recommendation for an inexpensive cover that would fit the bill? Thanks in advance for the help - John

I don't know if it is what you are looking for, but Cabelos has a cover for about $120.

I have one of the Cabella's covers on my 13. It's nice quality, and fits well. $199.99 for blue canvas.

That's 119.99, not 199 for the cover at Cabela's.
