Boat covers for single council boats

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone share some pics of Custom rain covers for Single counsil boats.... I am looking for something better than the stock Lund cover for my Mr Pike 17 that fits over the single council and the trolling motor while on the trailer and at the dock.

Thanks

Steve

I don't have any pictures, but a custom canvas shop will be able to make a cover much better than the stock lund cover. It will fit tighter and keep the water off better, and can be customized to however your boat is equipped.

I had mine done at North Country Canvas. It is a guy running the business out of his house. If you search for North Country Canvas you will find pictures. I was very happy with the work he did for me. He also does the work quickly as he does not have a large parking lot to store the boats so once he gets one in he wants to turn it around in a couple of days. He will work with you to figure out the best cover for you needs. In my case it was a snap on cover as my boat lives on a boat lift during the summer.

have the same boat, but our cover just gets bungee corded to the trailer, I'm sure for the price any tent and awning place can do it. the cover we have is a mankato tent and awning spendy spendy but a reall nice custom fit. i will email pix if your request them zimmerman _ dan _ c @ yahoo.com no spaces and put cover pics as the subject or i will delete it

Exactly what UKCM said. Very tight, "custom" fit, and high quality materials. All my boats have had, and will(hopefully there's a couple more) have North County Canvas covers on them. Good luck.

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
