We spoke on the phone and I told him what I was looking for, I believe the correct term is a mooring cover. He came and measured the boat, and he gave what I thought was a reasonable price ($1000) and timeframe (two weeks). Two days later I was walking the dog down the dock at night and my boat looked strange. As I got closer I saw that there was a cover on it! I hadn’t even sent the deposit! I finished the dog’s walk and wrote a check that night. Great guy, great company and quality work. I have no affiliation whatsoever other than being a happy customer. Tops By George in Virginia Beach. Highly recommended.

Congrats on finding this guy and the outcome .... To me, this appears to be the most convoluted and dishonest marine industry ..... among others .... happy for you ! .... fb

Glad you found a good guy. I've been trying to just get a quote from a shop in New Baltimore NY for a flybridge enclosurer with no luck.
