The custom fitted Sunbrella boat cover is amazing. It totally fits like a glove. It was made exactly to the specifications and measurements of my SeaRay Sundeck 200. In one word: AMAZING. It is worth every penny. You will not be disappointed. The cover is made by Westland which is a very reputable company. I also bought the little ratchet cincher thingy that tightens the rope around the edge. That little thing is also amazing. So simple, but it does its job like nothing else would do. It tightens the rope around the edge perfectly and in a matter of a few seconds. No effort is involved. It is particularly important if you intend to trailer with ANY cover. My only complaint about the cover itself is that it has two plastic hood shaped baffles that are supposed to permit air circulation and help keep moisture from building up in the boat. My problem with them is that I live in Arizona, and the Arizona sun totally DESTROYS anything made of plastic. My concern is that those two plastic baffles will be cracked and eventually turned to crumbled dust in a couple of years. If that happens, then I will be left with two holes in the top of the cover which would then allow water to easily enter the cover from the top. (The two baffles are located on the top of the boat cover, just behind the windshield. One is kind of above the driver's seat area and the other is kind of above the passenger seat area (next to and to the left of the driver). I hope I am wrong, but if I am not, then I will be contacting them and taking advantage of the warranty. I will find out just how good their warranty is at that time. I hope I am not disappointed. This boat cover is too expensive to put something flimsy on it like those two plastic baffles. I hope the material they are made with is superior, and I am wrong about them. We shall see. Other than those baffles though, this boat cover is amazing. People living in areas with less intense sun probably do not have to worry about the baffles. I bought the Linen color and it looks great. I bought the Linen color because I wanted a color that reflects the sun, not absorbs the sun. The cover includes sturdy tie down straps that are easy to install and adjust. I recommend this cover, and I would buy it again. Oh, and iBoats had the BEST price, and free shipping. I looked all around, and iBoats was the best.
