Looking to buy a good quality “”water proof” and trailerable boat cover for my Alumacraft Trophy 195. I was hoping a few guys on here have purchased one they like and could give some recommendations. I’ve searched on line until I got a head ache. Didn’t find many that are tailored specifically for that boat and the others seem inadequate for my needs. Thanks in advance fellas.

Little Joe's Canvas shop in Justice, IL made a very nice one for my Competitor 175.

Go with a custom rather than an out of the box store bought. Customized for any accessories including trolling motor, gps puck, your outboard, kicker, etc and reinforced at rub points on corners and windshield.

Sounds as if I’m going to get a custom cover instead of a “box” cover which is standard. I wish I would have thought of this months ago. Thanks for all the suggestions so far.

I got the custom at Little Joes with the top gun fabric and it ran about $800.It's a perfect fit and doesn't flap at all in the wind.I brought it there with my old cover on and had him copy it with a few tweaks.

These guys are making the factory covers for Alumacraft now

I have one on my new Comp 165 but it was purchased with the boat.

A link to a video on how they go on and work
