Default Question for Cat Owners:

I see a lot of cats with cockpit covers, but does anyone run a mooring style cover on their cat? Because of a cat's larger width are mooring covers too big? If not a mooring cover, what do you guys use to protect your cats when you are not using them?

Thanks in advance,

DK

I have both a cockpit and a full cover. The cockpit cover is used for when the boat is in the water and the full is used for trailering and storage.
Mine is a 30 foot though, Id hate to see the size of a full cover for a 46 skater.

I use a Carrie Cover for storage. Very light and protects from the elements.

Thanks for the input.

Chuck,

Did you get the carrie cover through Nortech? Does it go down the sides at all?

Check with "Rut Row" on the board. He has a 36 Skater and just got a full cover made. It covers the entire boat and some of the sides.
