Why do you not list Sunbrella as one of your favorites? I am considering having a cover made locally and was going that route. How do I know I am getting Sunbrella? Thank You

Full Pontoon Boat Cover for summer use. I have had issues with previous 2 covers building up moisture underneath.
Sunbrella is a great fabric, in fact I like all the acrylics just fine and use them frequently. Moisture build up even happens with breathable sunbrella. It's good to vent a pontoon cover. I use vents at the top of each pole called boat vents.
If I were to say anything at all about sunbrella or any acrylic that I don't like, it's abrasion issues. Acrylic boat cover material will find place to rub you can't even imagine it can rub. So it's good to pay special attention to reinforcing it in areas where it has the potential to wear through.
Another way I find helpful for keeping the inside dry is a dry heater. These just plug in and dry the air beneath the cover.
I usually build pontoon covers out of either sunbrella or top notch 9 and occasionally Weathermax 80.
