    Looking for a boat cover for the mud boat. Not looking cheap, but not on the very high end. Looking for that place that folks in the know buy from. 16-48 if it matters.

    Trailerable or just for storage in the yard? I got lucky and found a nice one in the Bargain Cave at my nearby Cabelas store.

    Really like the cover on my boat. So convenient to have everything in the boat and simply take the cover off at the launch and reverse that when leaving. The only thing we have to do is prop up some boards so rain will not pool on the cover. It doesn’t leak but nice not having giant pools of water on the cover is nice.

    I’ll send you name if it’s on the cover.

    A custom fit snap on will protect and is trail-able, but is quite expensive, several hundred dollars. My old boat had one and when I got the boat I have now I priced them and decided the stretch strap one that sorta fits that came with it will do. When not in use I help it with a plastic tarp over the back because the wind blows in crap from that direction. Boat is in open ended shed. Rich guy like you should just go buy a custom snap on.

    If you are going to keep the boat any length of time, have one built.

    For Jon boats I but a new one every year (two if winter is light) from Wal-Mart for $56. Small investment.

    Custom snap on cover for the runabout.

    I always keep boats covered. Keeps the sun from bleaching and destroying everything. Fuel lines last longer. Etc.

    Appreciate it. Doesn't need a trailerable cover. Snap on? Not for this one. Time to get busy.
