A 3-in-1 cover has rope in the hem to use as a quick dust cover, it has snaps mounted under the rub rail so it can be used while on a dock or when mooring, and it has trailering tabs for extra security and peace of mind while trailering long distance at high speeds. Each cover comes with adjustable poles to give it the pitch required to shed water. Vents are mounted on top of each pole so any moisture can escape from inside of the cover. If you don't trailer often we can custom make removable trailering straps for use with your cover. Reinforcement patches are sewn on the inside of the cover where there is anything that may cause frictional wear.
As a custom shop we can make your cover in pretty much any marine grade material that you would like. However, we highly recommend Aqualon® Edge for multiple reasons. Aqualon Edge is an extremely strong, light weight, long lasting and waterproof fabric with a long proven track record. Unlike a lot of the woven acrylic fabrics on the market, Aqualon Edge does not shrink when dry nor sag when wet, which makes aligning the snaps upon installation easier for you. It has a soft white polyester backing that will not scratch or leave any color marks on any part of your boat and it comes with one of the best warranties in the industry. We provide a limited lifetime warranty on all of our covers made from Aqualon Edge and PTFE (marine coated) thread against any and all manufacturer defects. It doesn't matter if your cover is 20 plus years old, as long as your cover is serviceable we will repair it (on the spot whenever possible) for no charge.
As part of the custom design process for your cover, we will discuss how you plan on using it and walk you through the process of using that type of cover to ensure we meet your expectations. It can be held on with just a rope in the hem, or snaps along the outer edge or trailer tabs with straps or all 3. We can make those straps adjustable as well as removable if you want. We can make it so it goes over, under or around a trolling motor. We can add mooring cleat access flaps, gas access flaps, zipper access panels... whatever you can dream up, we can make it happen. Each method comes with its own pros and cons, which we can discuss with you upon drop-off.
All covers are made by appointment only and typically take no longer than a week. The work involved in creating your custom cover is done here at our shop - none of it is farmed out. To make an appointment we require a $350 deposit, which is refundable up to a week in advance of your originally scheduled appointment date and your date can be changed at any time based on availability.
Our shop rate is $90/hr for two techs and a bay (during cover fabrication only), in our 3-bay cover shop. In the end, each cover is billed individually based on time and materials for that boat in particular.
A top quality, standard custom 3-in-1 cover averages between $1,400 and $1,700.
A top quality, specialty custom cover averages between $1,550 and $1,850.

Measuring your boat
We measure your boat's centerline length (straight measurement from bow to stern).
NOTE: Do not measure up and over the windshield.
The exact length of your boat is used, rounded up to the nearest foot.
Measure your boat's beam, the flat width of the boat at its widest point (usually near mid-ship).
Your boat's centerline length can be used to give you an estimated cost, however final billing is always based on time and materials specific to your boat.
