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.

Overtons (www.overtons.com) sells covers for some Boston Whalers.

Sundura Caribbean Blue Boston-Whaler Sport 13 w/o rails. $146.99 (plus s&h).

Sundura Caribbean Blue Transport Covers -- Limited 5-Year Warranty! Sundura's 100% polyester fabric was specifically designed for marine use. It's durable, water and stain resistant, and won't shrink or stretch like other marine fabrics. A special treatment also makes the Sundura line mildew and ultraviolet resistant. This polymer binding treatment maintains fabric breathability while reducing condensation that might form underneath the cover. They're equipped with a wide reinforcement at the windshield, plus reinforcement at strategic wear points. A special reinforcement kit is included to further customize your cover. Nylon web tie-down straps with non-corroding nylon buckles are sewn into the cover for a secure fit. Also includes sewn-in tie-down loops, adjustable draw cord, double-stitched seams, lock-stitched hems and rot-proof thread. Boston-Whaler Covers--Exclusively designed to fit Boston-Whaler boats. Maximum Length 13'4" up to 65" Beam

Now and then I've seen the company that makes these (canvaspc.com) sell returned units on ebay. They claim these are not damaged but may be dirty or stained and are not covered under warranty.

Good luck,
Barry

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.
