I, too, am looking for a cover; this for a 13' Sport. Any experiences with this, folks?

The cover I have on my Montauk is made by the Westland Co. in Phoenix AZ. They are available through most marine dealers. Very nice quality and fits like a glove. My experience with house brand covers from the marine discount stores is that most of them do not fit like a real custom cover.
Westlands phone is 602-437-1332. Give them a call and they will set you up with a dealer in your area.
Would be happy to email you a picture if you like.

I recently bought a "whaler" cover from Cabela's. My boat has front rails and I bought the cover for the "Whaler w/rails" and it fits perfectly. It has a drawstring that pulls the cover tight under the gunwales and it has tie-down loops every couple of feet all the way around too. It seems to be well made and I would recommend it.

I also have a Cabela's cover for my 13, and for the money it fits nice and has held up well. That said, it's nothing close to the fit and quality of the custom sunbrella cover on my Montauk. It fits over the rails and center console, and when the lashdowns are snugged, water rolls off with no ponding at all. It does not require any tentpoles or bows either. I had a seam restiched on it this year, and the owner of the canvas shop told me he would charge about $600 to make an identical cover using the old one for a patern, and around $800 if he had to fit it from scratch. For comparison, the off-the- shelf 13 cover cost about $100 3 or 4 years ago.
