FEATURE: HOW DO I CHOOSE A BOAT COVER?
This question gets asked all the time and for good reason. There are hundreds of different brands, models and types of boat covers all claiming to be the best and it can be difficult choosing which one is right for you. The most important factors are fit, weather, style and budget. We’ll go over the primary criteria that you will need to consider when choosing a boat cover along with some of our personal recommendations.
The single most important factor in choosing a boat cover is fit. It doesn’t matter what the cover is made of or what it looks like if it doesn’t fit properly. Covers that are too small leave boat surfaces exposed to the elements and provide a perfect opportunity for gaps that allow water and snow inside. Covers that are too big allow water to pool on the cover. They also allow wind to get under them and shift the cover around. The purpose of a cover is protection above all else. If the cover doesn’t fit, it will not properly protect.
FEATURE: THE BOATING BOOM DURING COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a tough year for families and businesses. Many kids are learning from home, businesses have gone virtual and social distancing guidelines have made simple tasks like getting groceries a more involved affair. One of the biggest effects was seen in the tourism and vacation industry. Vacations with large crowds have largely been canceled, but with all the stress of 2020 comes an even greater need to get out for a while.
Boating has been booming. The ability to go on vacation while remaining distanced from others has made boating a very attractive alternative to road trips, theme parks and vacation hot spots. New and existing boat owners have spent more time on the water this summer than ever before. This is a huge positive for those in the boating industry but comes with its share of challenges.
FEATURE: ONLINE SALES DURING COVID-19
It’s no secret that online retail sales have increased dramatically during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many online retailers have seen significant increases in sales volume, including National Covers.
