Default Custom boat cover MFD

I am looking for a custom cover for my 1990 Starliner. Does anyone know of a good shop in the Cincinnati area or in close proximity (50miles or so) that doesn't charge 3 arms and 2 legs for a cover, I've had estimates of $1600 and $2000. Has anyone had experience with "Carver styled to fit covers"? Picture examples on web are not that great and kinda look like loose bags over the boat. They're cheap enough for Sunbrella but not sure it's the fit I'm looking for. Any help pointing me to a better option would be greatly appreciated!!

My brother-in-law swears by this Amish guy out by Lake Lorelie, kinda within your 50 mile radius.......Sunset tarp and tent, (937) 393-1228, he did a great job repairing my bimini, also, John's tops over of Colerain bent up my bimini frame, don't know if he does covers. And where you gettin that third arm, those can be kinda hard to find????

Here's what I did with my Starliner and cover. I could do this because I had a new rubrail installed...you may not be able to do this if you have the original rub rail.

If you're on FB join the Ohio River Boat Party, I know I've seen people post about a couple local canvas guys on there.
Side note, where are you at in Cincy?

Default cover

National boat covers I have used before, not custom but a lot cheaper and not a bad cover. I would go with a cover thats a little longer so it can go over the motor.
