Looking of an inexpensive good winter cover for a 23ft Conquest Hard top, single 225. I have priced them locally (Bucks county, PA)and the price is about $750. Are there any cheaper alternatives or canvas shops that I can get a good cover for less money.

Is your Conquest on trailer or berth? If it's on a trailer like me, I use a 20' x 30' silver tarp and use about 30 bungee cords to secure to my trailer frame. Covers the whole boat when I'm not using it. Total cost about $100 and after 2 years, it still works great!

I have a 30 x 40 ft silver tarp for mine. It is actually too big. Go with the 20 x 30 so there is less tarp for the wind to get a hold of.

I have a silver [white inside] tarp 40x30 on my 255 Conquest
so far so good,use bungees,clips,etc. to hold in place and damp rid in the cabin.

Where did you purchase the silver tarp? I haven't been able to locate a source.

I think I bought my silver tarp online at this place.

I thought it was cheap but later found a similar tarp at my local Lowe's home improvement store for a bit cheaper. So I suggest you check your local home improvement warehouse to see if they have it. Most will stock the thinner blue tarp. The heavier duty silver ones are harder to find. Especially the large ones.

I would check harbor freight.

The draw back is....mine weighs 60 lbs so shipping charges could be $$$.

I purchased mine at a Boat US store. $130.00
