Revisiting some old threads here, I was wondering the same for a 230 CC. I saw a few online but damn they are high!

I'm in Oz, but I had a custom cover made for my 217LS, best thing I did. Cost me $1500 AUD but has been on for over 4 years. Considering always outside, is towable, covers the chimes, I'm very pleased.

Initially it felt like a lot of money, but a good cover is worth it. Really isnt worth getting a cheap something

What does that equate to in USD?

Exchange rate now is almost 1-1. So $1500 USD. Howver when I bought the boat in 2008, exchange rate was like $1AUS - $.70 USD. Our cars, boats are like twice the price. Example I paid $60k AUD plus for the Caravelle 217 LS , new price was like $$78k AUD ( I got the demo, only 217 LS in Oz). So for me a $1500 AUD cover is a small price to pay.

Also be a custom cover, I just roll it out, pull the drawstring that sits under the chimes, and its done, very easy to take on and off.

Back in 2008, has now shrunken and is nice and tight so to speak.

Looks like it fits like a glove. It's usually hard to find a right fit for a CC.

Off topic here but I heard Australia banned all personal firearms, is that true?

Jaimeson Have a look at this article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Australia

They have not banned them all only certain types but made them expensive and difficult to get. I used to have a firearm permit but it got too expensive and I had let it lapse.
