Do I Really Need a Boat Console Cover?

Feb 26, 2008
Whether you're in a stormy season or not, if you leave your boat unattended or unused for more than a week, it's a good idea to have it protected from the elements of nature, people and animals. The majority of people transport their boat from the water (dock) to a garage on land with a trailer. If the boat happens to be a stored on land in a specifically designed garage, then need for a boat console cover will not be required.

What You Need to Do When the Boat is Stored in the Open for a Long Time?

A boat is very sensitive to the elements of nature, however the most important thing that needs to be protected is the boat console. The majority of boats will come with a custom-made boat console cover, which will protect the boat from water, sun or dust. These are the most common elements that you'll have to fight against to preserve your boat.

Probably the best material to help protect your boat from all the elements is the old and very versatile canvas cloth. If the cover is made of canvas, you can be ensured that your console will be totally protected. While canvas will usually provide good protection against water, for the best results, some people will seal the cover with waterproof duct tape. This will almost guarantee total protection against even the worst possible storms.

Another good quality of canvas is its ability to "breath". This is a very important factor when the boat is stranded in a high humidity region. In this type of place, there is high moisture buildup, which, if left on the boat can destroy everything. This is particularly bad for the machinery of the boat console. The boat canvas cover will ensure that there is sufficient air circulating inside, so that the moisture evaporates before it can create potential damage.

A canvas boat console cover will also provide protection against dust and debris as well. While it allows the air to circulate, it also blocks the dust from entering and settling down on the console of the boat. Even against the strongest of winds, dust will not penetrate the canvas.

The bottom line is, the best way to protect your boat is to park it in a land garage. However, if you decide to leave your boat in the open, you will need to protect it with a customized canvas boat cover. This will ensure longevity for your boat.
