Sorry I think my last post was titled wrong. I wanted to know from experince out there what the best cover is for trailering. I like the Mills Mooring cover, but not sure how it will hold up at highway speeds. Any information that you may have with the Mills or others would be appreicated.

Pete, people have been loving the Cabel`s Boston Whaler covers for trailering, fair priced and well made!! The Mill`s mooring cover is made for trailering though, it has loops on it just for that purpose, buying both would cost you a Mint!! Jack.

The mills cover works great for trailering, I have about 12000 miles on mine with no problems. Reinforce any contact points and use rope rachets to tie down to the trailer. Have some suede sewn around the motorwell edge to keep from fraying.

Cabela's or Overton's. I have the Overton's and I have driven many miles. It is tough, easy to use and looks good, if you like Blue, only. I'm not using the bow rail, so there is extra room at the front of the cover. So far, so good.

The Mills cover fits under the rail, more aerodynamic.

The Mills cover is great but it is a storage cover not a trailerable cover without mods.
I have allways liked the Westland covers out of Phoenix.

I did meen Overton`s sorry :) Yea, Dick, I like the Mill`s better for Mooring and storage also, if you put downward force on the Mill`s cover I could see the clips being pulled down past the gunnel and digging into the Gelcoat? Jack.

You may want to try America Brand products at http://www.websweeper.com/.
I have both a bimini and a cover for my 13 from this company. Good products and they seem to have good customer service. I have had the cover for 2 seasons now and have traveled all over with it. Goes on easy and has extra padding in the correct places. It also has a built in motor cover. It's worth a look.
