Boat covers for single council boats

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
