I'm a little surprised. I've got a Genco cover that's holding up very well, & it's no spring chicken, though I'm not sure just how old it is. Only the tie down straps & loops are starting to wear through.
I usually check the sailboats, looking for ideas. Yeah, they seldom have nav stations, engine
access isn't too great, hanging lockers too small. They seem to have nice head
compartments, although I can't figure out why a 40 foot boat needs two of them.
There did seem to be fewer vendors this year, or they were replaced with... I dunno, extreme wakeboard surfer dude shops, sunglass huts, etc.
