After 14 years, you've done a great job of keeping that hull looking good, considering all the time it's spent in the water.

Honestly this boat pay for itself with the amount of time I spent on it LOL. Don’t see myself changing the boat with the pricing today (Sad), so try to keep it longer by cleaning it.

Did you guys have to take your boats to the manufacturer or did they have the dimensions already done for your boats? TopGun states on their website that they need your boat to make the custom cover.

I wasn't sure if umbrella was the same. This is all good info as I was looking at getting the lund travel cover with a new boat order and I'd rather invest in something with more quality.

Top Gun is the name of the material/fabric the cover is made from not the folks that actually make the cover.

In my case, Dufort Industries made the cover, they also do OEM work for several boat makers. They have hundreds of patterns in their system. If they do not have a pattern for the model, they measure it up and create one that will forever be on their system.

Regardless the Brand/Material going to use, need the boat to be there for custom for mine because I want my troller to be covered when cover is on. This place came to the marina picked up the boat and trailer it back after it’s done because I don’t have a truck to do it.
