  • 261 boat cover

    This morning some water got on the cover and tore it. Im looking for suggestions for a new one, something that is light, and easy to take on and off. The boat will be going under a barn soon so a dust cover would be more appropriate. The boat is a 261 with hardtop, radar, 2 antennas, and no bow rail. It must strap to the trailer or lifting hardware.

    Hey,

    I recently bought a new cover from Boat Covers Direct made of sun dura. I'm very happy with it. We've had a couple of big storms and it has held up well. Paid a little over $800 but much cheaper than a custom cover. I believe they have the dimensions for the 26 already in their system. I had to get a generic sizing which was made for a 28'6 boat with twins since I have an aftermarket bracket on my 25 and a single engine. Might be more of a cover than you're looking for but thought I'd share.

      There are quite a few one size fits all covers that attach under the t-top that might be a good idea. I think Chuck bought one for his 224 and had good success with it.

        I believe if you want a good fit and ease of use you have to spend the money and get one custom made. I plan to have 1 made for the 241.

        I do have a taylormade made for a 23' boat with a t-top. My first boat had a custom made top and there is no comparison (fit, quality, etc...), but at less than a 1/3 of the cost I can't complain. Mine is pulled tight and doesn't collect water anywhere.
