I looking for a maker of a boat cover for my J30. I'm in NW Lower Michigan. Actually what would be nice is a recommendation of a shop that someone is familiar with. The cover is not for this winter.

thanks

I saw a J/30 with I think a https://www.fairclough.com/ one. It looked very well thought out, over the boom, cut out for stanchions and a door. Give them a call see if they have it on file.

Yes, they have very nice looking covers. Not sure how the custom job would happen with the distance in between. Perhaps they have done other J-30's. I just found a local sail shop that could or does make them. Much more conversation with them.

Thanks for the reply

I had a Fairclough cover and frame for my J/30. It was fantastic and well worth the money. They installed it the first time. I disassembled and did for the next several years. Top tip, label all the frame parts. Makes it much easier to put humpy dumpy back together again.
