Default 1 minute mooring cover

I posted this in the boating forum but wanted to see if any of the gulf coast guys had any first hand experience with these covers. I know there have been some installed in Venice and GI.
Do they work as well as advertised? How do they hold up to the wind? Any mildew issues with cover on? Any input would be greatly appreciated. They arenít cheap so I figured Iíd reach our before spending that kind of money. Thanks!

Iím in Venice and these have really started popping up this past year it seems with the exception of a few that have been around a bit longer.

Iím looking into these as well. Iím not sure how long the cover itself holds up or cost to replace it. The rest of the system seems solid, but I canít imagine any cover lasting more than 3-5 years before replacing.

I also looked into another brand (canít recall name... they are promoted here in commercial classifieds). Anyway, I found an installer in Louisiana but his estimate was considerably more than these.

Just a note when some of the first ones were installed at Cypress Cove they were not high enough to account for high tide. However, subsequent installs account for this and I believe they are modifying the others.

The Touchless Boat Cover

The Touchless Boat cover is also what I inquired about. There are 2 installers in Louisiana one in Baton Rouge area who wonít go to Venice and one near Alexandria who will. It was more expensive, ventilation may be a little better, the cover itself would probably hold up about the same.

Only thing I wonder is how long that zipper is gonna last. Other than that looked pretty cool.
