Top Gun
by: Tammy

It tends to be different depending on where you are. The problem with a waterproof non-breathable boat cover material like Top Gun is it can't try quick enough beneath the fabric. Any fabric with a 5 year warranty is going to last longer, but will pretty much look like crud after 5 years. The manufacturer is taking the gamble that it will last at least 5 years with no problem.
If your dock has electricity you might try an air dryer beneath the cover. They cut down on mold significantly.
Another option you have is a new fabric, Aqualon Edge with a 7 year warranty. Aqualon has been around for quite some time, but they have added Edge to their line, with a longer warranty. It's true beauty is it stays cool to the touch, even in intense heat. I mean 30% cooler. It's also helpful to not put mold in an incubator so to speak.
