Thumbs down Carrie Covers

I bought a Carrie cover for my 28 skater.The cover was suposed to fit perfectly,they said they had the measurements for a 28 but yet wanted me to measure too(a 28 is a 28).Well all I can say is it fits like CRAP.It is Embarrassing to have something so poorly made on such a nice boat.They were nice people on the phone and told me they would fix it.But after 7or 8 calls and no return call I gave up!!I know they have done good work for some but I feel like I got F*CKED!

Ive used the Stamoid light material on three boats now, each one was done by a different trim shop. All good, and they last well and are easy to handle. It is still alot of material and is not comparable with the parachute nylon advertised by Carriecovers (they sent me some samples), however it is about the lightest you will want for trailering.
In all three cases the trimmer came and made a template by marking up a clear vinyl foil draped over the boat, and I thought to myself "it is never going to fit straight out" and everytime the cover arrived and I was impressed how perfectly it worked out!

I have also been considering one of these full covers for my Sonic........when one is storing the boat indoors (forklift/rack storage) and using the boat almost every weekend during the summer would you put the cockpit cover and the full cover or just the full cover?

I do both (cockpit cover and full cover). My full cover is from carrie cover and it works well but I wish it did fit a little neater for the price I paid for it. I would consider purchasing from another company next time.

I am sure there are alot of Good boat cover companys.

DO NOT BUY FROM CARRIE COVERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can go to the Army surplus store,buy a used parachute,and hire a blind seamstress to make you a better cover.
