Why should I have a cover on my boat?

I am often asked what is the advantage of buying a canvas cover.

4 basic reasons to choose a cover.

1. Economic.

Among all the options available to protect objects from the sun, the cover is one of the most economical, compared to varnishing and brightwork every few months. The Gelcoat keeps its lustre and does not need to be polished as often. The cover keeps the dirt and rust away so fewer washdowns and scrubbing stainless.

2. Ecological.

The materials that the cover is made of are fully recyclable.

3. Low Maintenance.

Canvas needs a very basic maintenance, almost zero, taking into consideration the fact you cover your boat, car, patio furniture or other objects liable to be damaged by the harmful UV rays with a cover for months and fold the cover away when you are using your investment, it will remain decent  for a long time.

An easy way to clean the cover is with water, a hose,  a soft deck brush, and a mild detergent.

Use a sponge or soft-bristled brush to clean, allowing the solution to soak into the fabric. Rinse thoroughly to remove all soap residue and allow to air dry.

4. Easy.

A cover is easy to install and secure over your investment. A cover also adds a pleasant look to the overall appearance.
