I use tuff end buoys by taylor made,,18'' white in color..They roll with the waves and keep the boats far apart..

Also the the cheaper,west marine/taylormade type cloth covers are coarser.

Also you have to maintain all covers and fenders,like if against a pier if it gets wood/concrete in the cover,etc.

dried up salt water on both will scratch the paint also.
it depends on the material of cover. If it is polyester, it will not hold any dust and particular or dried up salt water. So it will not scratch the paint of hull. I recommend stretch polyester fabric
