I was wondering if anyone has any experience with Hobie cover for the Wave or others that fit it. Apparently there are some that can stain the plastic hulls. Thanks for your advice!

I've always used a cheap tarp from Harbor Freight with no problems. They only last about one season, but at $5 or less (sometimes free), you can't beat them.

From personal experience, definitely stay away from any tarps with a black interior lining.

After sitting outdoors for almost a year, with a Murray's Marine Silver exterior / black interior cover..........the black transferred to the hull i.e. stained it. After hours of 'elbow grease' and numerous products I was able to remove about 85% of the black stains. Murray's said they had never heard of a problem like that.
