Default Looking for T-top mooring cover

Hi!

Looking around for a cover to use on our Key West 244cc that has a hard T-top, 18" radome, and windlass. Would like to use this while moored at our marina.

Would you have a solution that I should be considering?

Thanks a ton!

Thanks for your email and interest in our covers! What year is your boat? Do you have single or dual outboard motors? For your storage conditions, I would recommend using a T-Top only cover or a cover that is made to snug under the T-Top to protect the console area of your boat. We also have separate covers for your motor and leaning post, if you need more protection. Since you're storing the boat in the water, our full Carver boat cover will be a bit more challenging to achieve a tight fit for this boat application, but I am happy to help you get your boat covered.

Thanks

SHANNON and others with T-tops....WHERE AM I GOING WRONG WITH MY LOGIC?
I"m buying my first t-top boat (24')and do not understand why I would have an UNDER T-TOP cover vs OVER the T-Top ? I keep my boat on a lift. I would think throwing it up over the top and then using a bungee to secure it to my boat lift on one side and dock on the other seems to make sense. It may not look as good, but it would cover everything, be easier to put on and off I would think, and the generic big boat cover would be far less expensive than an under t-top custom cover. MAKE SENSE or not?

Hey Joey -

Thank you for your post! You are right, this has always been a question for many boaters and I hope a few others will chime in with their experiences too. For coverage, it's really just a preference and how much of the boat you can access or want covered.

If you choose the Carver cover to go up and over the T-Top, it will give you more protection and reduce the chances of anything getting inside your boat. Since your boat is on a lift, though, it may be a bit more difficult to get the cover over the T-Top and still secure it down well. Our Carver cover allows you to still access the boat when covered (from either side) and has a draw rope to exit and tighten on both sides. This cover also has tie down loops sewn every 2-3' throughout the hem for tying the cover down with straps, mooring bags or suction cup tie downs.

The Westland cover that secures under the T-Top is a 2-piece cover that zips together mid-console. It has adjustable straps to attach to the underside and also has loops throughout the hem to tie it down. This type of cover allows the T-Top to be exposed, as you know, so there's more of a chance that dirt, rain, or birds may be able to enter the boat since it's not completely closed off. But, this type of cover may be a little easier to install since you don't have to throw it over the T-Top.

I hope this information helps you to make a decision on what's best for your needs. Let me know if you have any other questions and I'm happy to help you as best as I can!

Thanks
