Bass Pro Shops WeatherSafe Storage Tite Boat Covers
Okay for the $$$
After trying several "high end" covers in the $ 300 to $ 500 dollar range, we have finally give up! We now buy one of these cheaply made, inexpensive covers every year. We store our boat outside year round and these do well from April until apx Feb/March depending on the snow and how often we catch when the rain has puddled on it. Then the ripping and tearing starts. If you store the boat outside you will NOT get 4 years out of this and we feel fourtunate when it lasts a whole year. But for $ 90, it's value will overcome a $ 500 custom cover any day of the week as they don't last more than 2 or 3 seasons anyway. Just my two cents!

just returned from a yearly family camping trip at Lopez lake. purchased the boat cover to make mornings quick and easy as the cover that came with my new boat is extremely heavy and cumbersome. this cover worked great. easy on easy off. Anyone whose been to Lopez lake can attest to the winds there. the lake is known for its great windsurfing. the cover never budged. I did use bungees to hold it down but only in three spots per side. i had intended to pack it away with my camping gear for next trip but after using it im going to stick with it. Anyone in the market for a custom fit 21ft Ranger Reatta cover? Ive got one, Cheap!!!

I purchased this boat cover in a hurry, I had an unexpected chance to travel my boat to the Sierra's for a fishing get-a-way. I needed something that would keep the morning frost off and protect from rain. I only have a "strapped" storage cover I use while the boat is on a trailer and I knew I would be storing my boat "on the beach" over night on this trip. I cut a few slits in the sides, re-enfored them from behind with a light canvas, and was able to slip the cover over the cleats to hold the cover in place. Worked like a charm. I think these covers would be a great choice for a temporary or secondary boat cover. I don't expect it to last forever, but I was very satisfied.

This was my third purchase of this particular boat cover (Type A). While the life is consistently only 3 years, that is exactly the warranty and the price can't be beaten (I store it ouside which has an impact). However, this time the new cover was not as wide as in the past and shorter. It was obvious the box had been openned before and returned, possibly for the same reason. I did manage to just make it fit on my 15.5ft BassTracker (very tight) but unsure why the change. Because of the size change the transom corners do not line up with the reinforced corners of the cover and the wench is no longer under cover. I could return it, which BPS is very good about, but decided to make it work.
