Whitewater Designs Raft Covers
These are the by far the best boat covers we've found for the money. Please don't be shy about spending the extra pennies and getting a slightly larger cover, especially if you want it to go over a frame. We get several exchanges a year from people who ordered just a little too snug a fit.
• protection against the sun's harmful effects from heat and UV rays
• a very good 6.5 oz vinyl-coated polyester
• reinforcement panels for rafts with and without rowing frames
• bungee cord around the edge ensures a snug fit to the raft
• tie-down loops around the sides allow secure strapping to the trailer
• complete tie-down instructions

Picked this cover up to leave an AIRE 143R raft on trailer during high water season and before trips. I jacked my shoulder up a bit and moving the boat on and off trailer has been a pain in the A. Tuff River Stuff had the best price I'd found and based upon past transactions I've always appreciated Tuff River Stuffs prompt and correct shipping. So I made the hefty purchase.
I went with the next size of cover based upon the recommendation. That was a good move. Fits nicely over the boat with the frame and I can even sneak an inflated duckie under it. I haven't used the straps that came with the cover. I use cam straps from the cover loops to my trailer. That seems ideal for my set up. I haven't tried transporting with the cover on, so no comment on that. Cover seems heavy duty so I'm thinking it should be durable.
I'd give the cover 5 stars but I believe the design could be altered to ventilate heat better (it does seem to trap some heat). My priority is UV protection while boat is outside . It has met that need. No real complaints.
