Axis factory cover issue

Recommended Posts

ac88926

I have a 2014 A22 with the grey axis factory cover on my all black A22 and every time I take the cover off, it has left a grey powder/dust all over the hull where the cover touches. Its not a big deal to wipe off with a micro fiber since it wipes off fairly easy, its just a pain in the a$$ to do each time. Anyone else have this issue? It is not pollen because I have to deal with that too on the parts of the hull that the cover is not touching.

That's weird with a new cover man. On my old boat with OLD cover did the same thing. It was the cover deteriorating or maybe dry rotting from weather damage. Wouldn't think that would be the issue with yours

I have not. My cover has the ratchet straps attached in two "cases" at the rear of the boat. How do most people wash their cover?

Had the same thing happen with an older cover as well. Agree, that would be frustrating if it was only a year old...

Yard with a garden hose and a brush on a broom stick. Hang to dry. Probably could use a power washer as well, I just don't have one. Just make sure any sticks/stones are moved prior to putting the cover down.

I just wonder if it is dust collected in the cover and nothing is actually wrong with it, being it is only a year old.

Not sure, My dealer advised taking to the laundry mat. If that doesn't work they are going to put a call into axis. I have no doubt that if the laundry mat doesn't work my dealer will take care of me.
