Been "covered" recently.   See below between the two major boat cover mfg.   Many believe (and I have to agree)  Evolution Boat covers is a great cover.  http://evolutioncovers.com/   Only draw back for Evolution cover has been the lead time is very long.

My opinion on ranking.

1) Evolution

2) CS Commercial Sewing

3) GL  - Great Lakes  ( I have a GL that came with my boat.  OK but would replace with one of the others)

Bake's covers are right up there with Evo covers.  Still a lead time but I don't think it is quite as long.

Bakes is Commercial Sewing is it not?  The prices sure look decent.

Nope... Bakes is a pro shop/boat maintenance shop (Paul might explain it better than that) and they were a top Malibu dealer for many many years. Today they don't sell boats but they have a sister company Inboards Northwest (in the same building) that sells Axis, Supra, Moomba.  Anyway.. they have their own canvas shop onsite. Before Evo came along I think Bakes was the only place for a nice custom cover.  BTW.. Bakes and Evo are just down the street from each other in the same city.

Sorry - I meant to say a Bake's cover is a CS cover but as you say, they sell both CS and their own.  FWIW, there are lots of independent shops that will make incredible covers.

I just got a 19 lsv with the commercial sewing cover and it is awesome.

If you’re willing to take the boat to them, usually a local canvas or sail sewing shop can make you a custom cover that will be of better quality and fit than OEM. I just had one made for a 25 LSV so I could leave the Bimini open on the lift and cover the swim deck. It’s a much better fit than the CS cover and it keeps the boat (Bimini, tower, speakers, swim deck and all) completely clean.
