I am looking to have a boat cover made but I want a thicker one more like a towing cover? Any zoners do this

Wally World has Stearns canvas covers and they are towable.Getting that nice tight fit of a custom cover might be tough but for about $100 , you get a few years and they do keep the leaves out.

I bought one from Bass Pro about a year ago and it's already dry rotted and has rips in it. Not buying another one of those again.

Like Hoffman said, they dry rot and tear in this weather. Unless your gonna garage keep it, I would not go overboard with a boat cover. AZ sun is brutal on them. After wasting money on a nice one that didn't last more than 2 seasons, I just buy some cheap tarps and bungee them down tight.

I can't speak for Apache Awning because I've never seen their covers but, I have a Dean's cover and the thing is super thick and reinforced everywhere. It's a custom travel cover that fits your exact boat so, it's tight. They are pricey but, in my opinion you'll go through enough of the cheap covers to pay for a Dean's.

Bruce:

Not to hijack the thread but he caught 6 greenies (while we had our meeting) fishing robo worms ds in the wood/sticks across from the landing. One 2-8 and the rest unders. He came in to the landing after the meeting and showed me the fish in the livewell and we released them there at the landing.
