Looking for a winter cover for a IP350 or a canvas maker that would be able to make one in the northeast.

We purchased a winter cover for our 370 in 2004 from The Canvas Store of Huntington, NY. It included the over the toe rail option and zippers for access from the gates. We paid about $2600 for it at the boat show. It has been a great buy, fits perfectly, really protects the boat which stays in the water here in the lower Bay. and should continue to serve many more years. After our first experience at putting it on my wife and I have been able to install it in under two hours. I have been able to do some work down below on some really cold/wet/windy days and be comfortable.

Last season we had the major seams restiched by our canvas guy as we could see the thread was starting to go, but then no different than for sails. I think I could find a picture if you would like to see it installed.

We have a Fairclough (sp?) which we think is great. It gets installed, removed, stored, and maintained by a local canvas shop for about $750 per year. PM for photos if interested.

Hi there.
I've just bought an IP350 and it has a winter cover with it. I won't be using it as I'll be cruising south. I'll be back on board early next week, if the yard has finished the new installation, and open the bag and check the condition. It's in Bradenton Fl.

Still interested?

No pics yet. I'll be back in Bradenton next week and let you know. I have no idea yet of what it's worth.
I'll contact you with pics.

You can order the covers to extend over the toerail if you wish. The Fairclough covers require an aluminum tubing frame that comes apart when not in use. You can get windows, doors or whatever you want as each cover is custom made. Someone comes to your boat and measures everything before the cover is made. They also install it for you. A friend had one made for his Bayfield 41 last year and it cost him about $4500. Shrink wrapping the same boat runs about $1300 in our yard so he figures to be ahead of the game in a few years as long as he does all the erecting and removing himself.

You can get a cover from many canvas shops. The Canvas Store is local to us and they also measure and custom make your cover. These covers are hung from halyards and I do not think they require a frame making them somewhat easier to store and erect. I believe they run between $2500 and $3000 depending on options.

I have our boat shrink wrapped in the off season. The shrink wrap allows the boat to warm up in the sun and I can often work under the shrink wrap if it isn't too cold. The shrink wrap allows light to come in and with our solar panels the light keeps the batteries topped up all winter.

One big reason to shrink wrap for me is that I have no room at home to store what has got to be an awful lot of canvas. No doubt if I had the boat yard erect and remove, and store the cover each year it would cost me as much as the shrink wrap.

If you can do it yourself and store the cover then canvas is probably a less expensive way to go, but these covers do require periodic repair. In the winter of 2011 we had heavy/wet snowfall and most shrink wrap was damaged, and many Fairclough cover frames broke. I did not get a sense as to how the halyard hung covers faired. Our yard has since gone to heavier framing materials for the shrink wrap. Of course it didn't snow at all last year.

Hi there
I've taken a few pics to send you. Please send me your email address and I'll send them to you. It is in very good condition. As is all the canvas on board. Including zippers, stitching etc.
It comprises of 2 pieces plus the bag.
I couldn't open it up fully as the wind is blowing here today.
It looks lik a tight fitting one. No frames.
The boat came from the Great Lakes so I presume it was to be used for winter haul out??
It doesn't look like its been used much. If at all. The previous owner hardly used the boat as it only had 214 hrs on the engine.
Let me know what you would like to do.
I think $600 would do it.
Regards
Les
