    On 5/25/12 I purchased a WM 11161031 inflatable boat cover. It was installed on my WM HP 310 dinghy which is kept out of the water in Bristol, RI. After about two months, the sections of the cover that contact the 'rubber cones' at the end of the pontoons wore through. I purchased a boat cover patch kit and repaired the damaged areas and thought that would be the end of my problems with the cover.

    This year, after about a month of use, one side of the cover that contacts one rowlock wore through. I patched the cover again. Unfortunately, when reinstalling the repaired cover, another part of it, which doesn't contact anything, ripped apart.

    There are two other recent reviews on the WM website citing similar problems with product durability. My cover needs replacement but I can't really see purchasing an identical one. The material is used for this cover is not suitable for the application. While the product fits well and is easy to use, it is not worthy of being sold by West Marine.

    Comments about Inflatable Boat Covers:

    Good cover for storing your inflatable, but not for traveling. Used it to cover my inflatable on the back of a Freedom lift and even strapped down, the back still comes off and water gets in everywhere. Good inexpensive cover, but if you need it to travel, get a higher quality one.

    I am happy that it did last for the extended trip though, which is what I needed it to do.

        Comments about Inflatable Boat Covers:

        So far this cover as withstood some pretty heavy rain. I would recommend some sort of support to raise the middle up to help shed water. The best way I have found to put the cover on is by pulling our inflatable up onto the dock. The straps wrap around underneath and this has been easier to do on the dock rather than trying to do it while still in the water. The straps are very long and this helps when pulling them under the boat, don't trim them like I almost did. It is extremely light weight and folds up into a tidy little package in the mesh bag which is included.

          Comments about Inflatable Boat Covers:

          Hard to install unless tender is kept on the hard... It would be ideal but not allowed in the confines of my slip at the marina. An alternate design to shed rainwater but not require over the waterline fit would be fantastic. It's a great cover for the price and works well...

                  Great cover that protects my inflatable boat from the sun, rain and salt air. Large enough to cover the motor so improves time to get the boat ready for use.

                  Comments about Inflatable Boat Covers:

                  The quality for this cover is really excellent, i really feel that it has exeeded what i expected. Seems very durable, and ideal for long exposers to sun. What is perhaps not too practical is the way it ties up underneath the boat but would really recomend it, great quality por low price.
