I've heard conflicting reports regarding use of boat covers while trailering.

The negative states that it causes wear to contact surfaces on the boat and exessive wear on the cover due to winds.

Any opinions?

You know what they say about opinions-

Do a search for Montauk trailering, or some such - there has been *tons* of discussion here about your question.

There are covers especially designed for trailering, and there are covers designed for covering. The ones intended for trailering have anti chaf panels at contact points, are made of very heavy canvas to cut flapping, and often have reinforcing panels or stays sewn in. They also have multiple tie down points to secure them to either the boat or the trailer. If you cover is not designed for trailering, don't use it for that purpose. The cover manufacturer should be able to tell you for sure. BillS
