whats the boat worth to you?? if low budget I'd go with store bought parachute material- higher value try local canvas shop and have custom made. I have new canvas cockpit cover and have considered a snap on baw cover up to windshield.

Total boat covers are to hard to put on and off..to heavy...what is wrong with that light parachute stuff..anything?? I am having one built also just can not figure the best lightest stuff??Canvas over cockpit of course.

There is this new type of sail material that i used a few times on the race boats. If you can get to a sail maker i am sure they would be able to point you in the right direction. Plus sailboaters are always on budgets saving for beer, and grass so they never have money to spend on the boats, chances are good it will be cheap

Depends on if it will be inside or outside stored. Inside, I would consider nothing more than a dust cover. Outside, something waterproof, weatherproof, sun durable.

You MUST talk with John at Sunrise Uph
www.sunriseuph.com
He also an OSO member and has really low prices and his work is the best I've seen yet! He made a custom cover for my TG. It is out of a new material (Triton??) but it is VERY lite (20 lbs) esp for a 38' boat and 100% waterproof. Just call him and ask what he made my cover out of.
