Yes, I did. Because I'm in South Florida, he suggested I would have access to many more excellent businesses in this area that specialize in boat covers, bimini tops, etc. I was just putting out feelers here for any positive suggestions. Already have a few contacts and estimates.
Definitely, have someone custom make it. You wouldn't be sorry you paid the extra money for quality. I had a friend that bough one of those cheap tarps and it never made it thru a year, especially since we had a big storm. Anyway, we have those type of shops over here in the Bradenton/Sarasota area. So I'm sure you gotta have one over on your coast.
I have a custom cover on my Beavertail B2 which is very nice, sunbrella black, and custom important for poling platform. In Maine for my 20 foot cc. I bought a very good cover from Cabelas and it works great, plenty tough, good tie downs a third the cost.
My wife just altered my cover to fit around a trolling motor and made a new cover for my Ipilot. Make sure you get Sunbrella fabric, this cover is 10 years old and still going strong. I treat and waterproof it once a year.
