Default Light weight full cover material?

Looking to do a full cover that would be lighter than a Sunbrella and still do a good job repelling water. Thought is to have a cover that can go on and off fairly easily perhaps during the summer wher the full cover is just too heavy and bulky. Tried some coated material from Odessey but it wouldn't breathe. Looking for ideas.

Stamoid. It is all new and is an up graded material from sunbrella. The stamoid material as an option on all our new Concept Boats.

Carrie Covers looks like they do some really nice work. Stamoid looks to have a fairly decent price. Does anyone happen to know anything about the real light material that looked like parachute material?

I had a cover for my 35' Fountain made this year out of Stamoid material. Covers entire boat from just below rub rails. VERY happy with it. It is the lighter of the two versions of Stamoid I was shown.

I've never had one for a larger boat, but they work great on the PWC's as a storage cover. I don't think they would trailer well, but it doesn't sound like that's what your interested in anyway? Check ebay- I found some real good deals on those type of lightweight covers there.

Look at Triton. It is way more water resistant than Sunbrella, yet is much lighter and easy to manage.
Had cockpit cover and full bow to stern cover made - great material.
