Ever plan a nice day out on the water with a bunch of friends…or maybe you’re trying to impress the in-laws with a leisurely boat ride down the Intracoastal Waterway…and when you get to the marina, you realize that your boat is a filthy mess? I can’t even begin to imagine your mother-in-law’s summer whites touching a grimy seat cushion!
Even when you are vigilant about keeping your boat clean, harsh elements can cover boats, boat furniture and gadgets with debris and the sun’s harsh rays can fade your seats – making them lackluster way before their time.
The good news is that there is a solution. Boat covers, boat furniture covers and boat electronics covers can keep your pride and joy clean and help protect against the cracking and fading that the sun, wind and salt can all cause. Plus, boat covers and boat seat covers can keep your cushions cool, so that you and your guests can be comfortably seated as soon as you board.
Ok, so let’s address Mom-in-Law’s pants problem first! Boat seat covers can ensure that your guests will leave with their bum as clean as it came, and they are available in a variety of colors, styles and materials. There are boat seat covers for back-to-back chairs, deck chairs, bucket seats…whatever you’ve got. There are also boat covers which will protect your console, helm and electronics. Then there are covers for your entire boat that come custom fitted from the manufacturer or as slip-ons with elastic fitted bottoms or straps. They even fold easily for storage.
You can get your boat seat covers in a wide array of shopping venues, such as boating stores like Overton’s, West Marine and Bass Pro Shops; outdoorsman shops, like Gander Mountain and Cabela’s; as well as online sites, including Amazon. Boat covers and boat electronics covers can be purchased directly through the manufacturer for an exact fit. Flex fit boat covers can also be acquired through a variety of online sources. Some even come with convenient storage bags and great warranties.
