Default Prop/Drive covers for trailering

Who has them? Any thoughts? I've seen prop covers, not too many drive covers...how do they hold up?

Lastly, are they worth the $ ?

Prop covers - Mercury Racing, around $30.00 each I think. Drive covers are generally custom made at an uphulstery shop, $250.00 for 2.

Best idea is to take the props off.

Do prop covers wear down easily?

Mine have not, and they are three seasons old. I install them as soon as I pull the boat from the water.
