I am looking at buying a new trampoline cover for my H16. Does anyone have suggestions on where or who to buy from? The only ones I have found are from Slo Sail Canvas or Sailor's Tailor. Has anyone bought a cover from either of these companies? I would like one that the main halyard can be tied off to for the tent effect for draining water off or camping.

Thanks for the link....I was looking to get one through Salt City originally but I couldn't find a Hobie 16 cover through them when I looked a couple days ago.

Mine came from Rooke sails. It doesn't have anything to lift the middle with the main halyard but I'm sure if you call Chris Rooke and ask about it I'm sure he could accommodate.

I bought this cover (once). Thought that little hook was a cool idea. Ended up being the starting point of failure, it ripped down this center seam.

I've gone back to billboard vinyl for tramp covers.

ps anything Chris Rooke's gals make rocks (I have their banana peel hull covers), you pay more but it's 1st cabin ps

I just made this one out of some stuff I had laying around (stopper balls and an old tent) and a 50 dollar Walmart boat cover designed for a Vhull.. and the Walmart cover had all of the shockcord and everything..


I probably make something a bit heavier duty should this fail, but the concept is going to be the same... Armed with just a cheapo sewing machine, this really didn't take long at all..

Most importantly... It is quick and easy to take on and off...
