    Posted: April-07-2021 at 1:29pm
I've got a 78 martinique. It shares the hull as the 2nd gen ski nautique, but has a minority different windshield than the straight glass of the SN. I also have the standard dual airhorns, where I don't think I've seen those on a SN.

I can't imagine this cover wouldn't fit my martinique, as it's not THAT custom to not be able to fit. https://www.overtons.com/hot-shot-coated-polyester-boat-cover-for-correct-craft-ski-nautique-closed-bow-303435.html#q=Correct%20craft%20cover&pmin=200.00&pmax=300.00&start=1&sz=12&cgid=covers-tops%2Fboat-covers%2Fcustom-fit-boat-covers

Overtons won't accept returns of it doesn't fit

My old cover is needing replacement after 20+ years.

Tom,
Are you looking for a cover that can be trailered or just storage. Knowing that will help.

FYI, the deck mounted horns were aftermarket dealer installed. 

Here's a link to the cover you are looking at:

I'm looking mostly for storage, not trailering.

Then the Overtons cover should be fine. Covers for trailering need to have a very tight fit custom such as the one Angola canvas makes.

Thank you very much for the quick reply! These are on sale through tonight, and I wanted to take advantage of the sale price

One other thing, how long will this " hot shot polyester" be expected to last if outdoors all summer with no shade? It gets stored in winter in a garage. The sharkskin or other options are out there for more $, but if this cover will last a few years, I'm fine with that. I'd just hate to have to replace it with a slightly more expensive fabric option 1-2 years down the road.

Angola does NOT make trailerable covers. Suspect horns and placement won’t matter much on any of the major brands, so long as they generally end up in the canopy forward of the windshield. Would expect windshield height and shape (mostly corner location) to vary enough between a martinique and SN to matter, if it’s a cover meant to fit properly. Angola would fit and likely has the pattern, no need to order the wrong one and cross your fingers.

Tim,
You're saying the Angola cover fit is poor so you can't take it out on the road? Guess I'll need to rethink my Angola.

The last of the ice went out this last Saturday the 3rd. Yup, early spring this year.

Nope, wouldn’t trailer with any of my Angola’s more than a short trip in town at 30mph or less (if it were raining or such). No mooring style cover is tight enough and don’t expect it to trailer. Had a trailerable Rankin (like a Coversports) and that’s the only style I’ve seen without snaps that could be towed without buffeting. I’ll pass on the gel and cover damage otherwise. YMMV

Truly trailerable covers are a work of art but also a huge PITA to put on. Unless snaps.

I had mine done by Angola. Pattern 29. I had it done in Aqualon II. They will make it with or without snaps. I had them make mine with eyelets plus a few extra in critical areas. Holding up well after 4 years now. I will not tow with it on though. I am going to have them make one for our pontoon also(they made the original).
