i just got a medium duty blue all weather tarp from a local hard ware store to cover my gheenoe. got it 20 by 10 foot i think it was and it works great and matches the boat to. also i zip tied the tarp under the boat to create a so called gheenoe burito. lol :wink: keeps the tarp from flapping in the wind and getting thrown back over the boat, leaving it exsposed.



but i saw one guy a in a OLDDDD post that he and his daughter hand stitched one for his gheenoe...it looked alot nicer than my blue tarp!

If you have custom gheenoe's with all that money tied up in them, who wants to have a poor mans roof tarp to cover such a sweet looking fish slaying machine?

Sounds good to me...better than s"stitching" too. Stitch is just a word made up by dudes who don't wanna admit they know how to sew...and they shouldn't. Lol.

I use a walmart tarp but Custom Gheenoe has connections with canvas shops and has helped customers with custom fit covers for their boats. Give them a call.

I use a tarp as well. I get the heavy duty silver/brown,
10'x20'...at Lowes. I bungee it front and back and put a
sand bag on each corner with the silver side out.
I also use a motor cover as well.
The tarp is sacrificial and must be replaced about once a
year. The Fl. sun will eat up just about anything you leave
out in it...I would rather replace a $35.00 tarp than a
$300.00 custom cover any day!

You don't need a cover if you keep in the garage, put the wife's minivan out to the curb. You may have to sleep in your noe for a few days, but you gotta kep your baby out of the elements.

I use a jon boat cover from walmart. There is way too much room on the sides so puddling can be an issue..

Does anyone have a solution that they can drive with?...I would like to be able to pack-and-go when it comes to camping trips. I would love to be able to stop at Bass Pro on the way down without worrying that all my stuff would be stolen!

Use Rubbermaid Action Packer boxes with locks & secure with a chain inside your boat. Not super secure, but will deter quick snatch and grabs.
