Boat covers

Hey Guys just on the topic of boat covers. Im thinking of purchasing a custom boat cover as my ebay covers have only been good for 12 months- if anyone out there can give me some feedback on their own custom cover- is it worth the expense- how much roughly for a 6 m Haines hunter and  recommended trimmers ??? Cheers

GK Trimmers in Canning Vale

Did an awesome job of mine in heavy canvas, can tow with it fitted without any concerns. Not cheap but truly quality work.  Mine cost just short of $2 Grand but that included st9ne shields.  Did my previous boat in it lasted over five years and was still going strong when I sold the boat so I don’t know what it’s eventual life span was

Worth it

theyre not cheap but worth it if you have your boat stored outdoors.

my previous 8m Haines patriot full trailerable cover cost $4500

custom covers will cost but in the end will do a better job if you want trailerability..

 I’ve got a cheapie to to keep the sun and leaves off my current boat, and tow it uncovered.

Boat cover

Have one from go trimmers as well, custom made for my boat. Towed all over WA with it. Mine is only a 5m trailcraft and it was about $1300 8 years ago. Had the side panel replaced last year. As my boat is not under cover it has been the best investment ever.


I would rather be fishing

 Ive got a kaiser premium cover off ebay cant remember why I chose that one but I remember someone said they lasted. It fits really good and has been flogged by wind, heat and sun up in exmouth and is 18 months old and still looks  really good no tears or powdering a bit pindan stained though.
