    Have a 2006 2275RL, been a great boat, however, the original cover has really deteriorated and in the process “burned” the vinyl wherever the two touch. Almost like the cover has drawn the moisture out of the vinyl where they touch and caused the vinyl to dry and crack. Rest of the vinyl is in great shape. ???

    Anyway, need to replace the cover, and since we don’t have a trailer taking the boat to a custom shop isn’t a great option.
    Any suggestions? Is buying another oem cover the only option to keep snap locations the same?

    When mine was replaced the snaps were not installed .If you install the snaps yourself ,get a "good" snap tool

    Many canvas shops will come to you because not everyone has a trailer. And....any cover you get will not have the snaps installed because every boat is different.

    I think sunbrella has a long history of high quality.

    It's like waxing your car. It only lasts so long but will help keep it looking good. I'm not real concerned below the waterline, but I keep up on wiping mine down every week or two.
