Our custom boat cover is actually four individual pieces which offers greater flexibility. When used together, the panels will cover the boat entirely to keep out the elements and keep our items safe when we are away from the boat. Windows can be added to the panels, but we decided to leave them out of our design for security reasons.
Since we have a bimini top, we can secure the cover to the aluminum frame using snaps. The two side panels will roll up and stay on the boat while we use it - like a window shade. If we want more protection from the wind or sun, we can lower the panels as needed. The other two panels will snap to the bimini and go to the front or back of the boat, connecting to the side panels with zippers.
On the two side panels, we added an 18" band of contrasting Sunbrella fabric at the top. When these panels are rolled up, there will be an orange band that is a design feature to tie in to the colors of the boat. We thought having the entire cover be orange would be too much! The balance of the two side panels are grey, as are the front and back sections.
