Boat Covers

The worst enemy of a varnished boat (besides a runaway log truck) is the sun. If a wooden boat is left for long periods exposed to the sun's ultraviolet rays, it will become weathered-looking, especially on the inside. That's because the inside of the boat is always exposed, while the sides are only hit part of the time. Many of our customers paint the outside of the boat (opaque paint being a permanent UV filter), then varnish or oil the inside of the boat. Such a boat can be stored outdoors with just a top cover to protect the clear finish inside. When you're in the boat you can still enjoy the beauty and craftsmanship of the wood. Full covers, however, offer side protection from gravel and other road hazards as well as the sun.

Our covers are one size only, with an elastic band and draw rope to tighten around the top edge of the boat. There are grommets as well for tightening and fitting.

This "Woodie Hindman" driftboat was built in 1951
