Inflatable Covers

Folks do this regularly down in Mexico and beyond. There is a guy in Mazatlan who does a heck of a job. I would think a local canvas worker could do this for your where ever you are.

West Marine sells what they call "chaps" for your very boat.

While it is usually true that the west website has everything you see in the stores and or the catalogue, they do like to remind you that they are separate entities. Try calling a store and asking for them. (good luck, hope you get the one guy who knows the stock!)

I have seen deflatables painted with acrylic housepaint before as this not only protects the fabric from UV, but on poorly painted ones it looks quite ugly, therefore making it less atractive to thieves.
