    Hey all.

    New here.

    I just picked up a pretty mint 1997 185BR. We have an uncovered slip at the local marina and it came with some awful generic cover that I’m pretty sure will have blown off by tomorrow.

    Where can I get the best storage cover?

    Welcome! You should strongly consider sharing photos of your new rig. Otherwise we're forced to assume you actually purchased a Bayliner.

    If you google "boat cover" you'll find loads of companies out there. You could also call a local canvas maker. That would be a whole lot more expensive than the online guys these days though.

    I had good luck with Boat Covers Direct. (on line) I have the one they make from Carver with Sunbrella. Added a ratcheting devise to pull the draw cord very tight. Took the cover to a local canvas shop and had them sew in two vents for where the support pole go.
