    I'm not sure if this has been covered here before, and if it was please delete.

    I have a 2000 15' Mitzi Skiff and am looking for a cheap-o Walmart cover to keep the elements out.

    I have a few questions that I would be most appreciative if someone could help me out:

    1) Should I go super big and get a cover that would go over the poling platform as well? Or try to find something that would fit relatively flush.

    2) Does anyone know of a website that I might get something that is better for the dollar than going to Walmart?

    What did you end up finding/using for the boat, I'm in the same situation currently, looking for something that works well without having to go completely custom. Thanks

    I have a 16'2" Skull Island and i bought a cheap cover from academy sports. It is 18'6" and fits over my poling platform and motor almost perfectly. My boat stays in a garage but im just a nut and keep it covered so i dont know how well the cover withstands the elements. But the fit is great. Hope this helps.
