Winter Boat Covers

A Winter Boat Cover can be one of the bigger investments you make for your boat. But it can be an investment that in the long run can save you money.

At Rock Hall Canvas Works we are proud to work with Fisher Canvas Products to produce the best covers on the market today. Fred Fisher started making covers at his father’s canvas shop, and has continued that tradition of excellent craftsmanship seen in every cover they produce.

Materials:
We offer two options when choosing a material for your boat cover.

Sunforger
12oz Cotton Army Duck with s a finish that is applied to the base material. Pearl Grey in color, this material is durable, water repellant, mildew resistant and breathable. As with any canvas product, with proper care this material will give years of dependable service.

WeatherMax 80
High strength and durable solution dyed polyester ideal for year round storage. It is water repellant, breathable, mold and mildew resistant. A great benefit to WeatherMax 80 is that this material is about 1/3 the weight of the cotton covers yet still delivers the same protection.

Structure/Frame:
All Covers have a draw rope in the hem and tie down loops spaced approximately every 4′-5′.

Vents are standard in all covers.

For most boats under 35′ and without radar arch, sleeves are installed on the outside of the cover to insert 2×4’s. There are 3 sleeves: 1 in the bow section and 2 in the transom.

Larger boats and those with radar arches, a frame is constructed to support under the boat cover. We recommend using PVC pipe and provide a guide on how to make one.

Will someone come out and measure my boat?
We currently maintain a file of over 6000 custom, hand drawn patterns and are adding to that collection daily. If we have the boat’s pattern on file then we will not need to come out and measure it unless there are added accessories. Details like the location of those accessories and their size will need to be measured so that the cover fits properly.

Is the cover guaranteed?
As always, we stand behind what we sell. Fisher Boat Covers are guaranteed to fit your boat when they are installed and supported properly. We guarantee the cover to be free of defects in workmanship and materials when you receive it and install it on your boat.

With proper care, the average life a boat cover is 10 seasons. Proper care means that when the cover comes off of the boat, it must be completely dry and stored in a cool dry place. The cover is mildew resistant, but if it is balled up while it is damp, eventually mildew will set in and cause those areas of the cover to become brittle.

The cover should also have some sun exposure while it is on the boat. This will allow for proper drying. If rips or damage occurs to the cover, it should be repaired as soon as practical.

Summer Storage and Repairs
Boat Cover can be large and bulky. We offer Summer Storage of your cover. Each cover is properly inspected and any repairs needed are made. Covers a folded and ready for Winter use.
