What do you guys think about this cover for a Hobie 16? 210 bucks seems like a lot for a cover; however I use 2 tarps to cover my boat now and they are always a &^%$# to get on and off. I live in CA so I just need something to block Sun and Rain.

I've always wanted to build my own but I don't have a sewing machine and I would imagine it would take a lot of time. Hopefully someone has used this cover and can give you a thumbs up or thumbs down on the build quality and material durability.

RIght, if the materials are good and it will last 2-3 seasons, it will be worth the money. If not then I'll just stick with the cheap tarps at harbor freight tools (only last 1 season).
