New Grady owner looking to get a cover to help keep the boat cleaner while in the boat slip. It is for our 2022 257 Fisherman. Thx

Have a local canvas shop measure and install one.

If it is primarily for slip use, make sure the fastening system is designed for that, and not for walking around a trailer.
I would go for a fabric like ripstop, that you can cram into a stuff sack, not a bulky sunbrella type.

Here's an example for you to think about.
I just had my local canvas shop make me one. Used d-rings and straps to attach to the hard top bracket to flow under the rocket launchers. I had to add some hardware to the transom.
Sides hang with sand bags so I don't need to use fasteners, but when on the trailer I could put some webbing under the hull.
Zipper near the transom door so you can access without undoing a bunch of straps.
I put it on last week on the dock, works great.

This is Stamoid fabric by the way. I did the drop down curtains with it too. Doesn’t shrink. Seems pretty rip-proof.
