Know where to purchase a winter boat cover?

Anyone know where to purchase a winter boat cover? Or does anyone have a winter boat cover and can advise where it was purchased? Iím having a very difficult time finding a store online. I'm a Catalina 25 Tall Rig Owner

Thank you.

You probably need to get one custom made, as most sailboats need to have custom boat covers, as the covers will differ quite a bit between even the same model boat, based on modifications to the rig, deck fittings, and the frame work used to support the cover. Any good canvas shop should be able to quote you a price on making a custom frame and cover...it won't be cheap though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Don't know where you are, but on the East Coast, a lot of people go with Fairclough, in New Haven CT. Their covers can be set up for in-or out of water storage with the mast in or out as well. They seem to last a long time. I believe they have a fairly user-friendly website. The covers SailNet shows here aren't big enough.
