Perfect fit for Hobie Tandem Island, excellent quality and best price.
The product is very well made. But, it is advertised incorrectly. Ads say it can used as a upside down or upright cover. It is only made as an upside down cover. The only way it can used when it is right side up is if a frame is used over the top of the canoe. Otherwise, the inside turns into the lake that you want to be on. All the straps, pull stings or lace ups won't make it tight enough to prevent pooling. You can't use the front mooring eye to trailer it. There is no hole for it, when it is right side up. The manufacturer was very helpful with suggestions to make the frame. There suggest for using a grommet to make a hole is so, so. I won't suggest this product to anyone wanting to trailer a large canoe upright, like my 18 footer.
Tandem Island Alternative. I bought this cover to protect our 2017 Tandem Island from the Colorado sun and snow while it's on the trailer. Materials and workmanship are excellent, with lots of tightening and tie-down hoops built in. This cover *almost* fits the TI perfectly, except for the rear. The rear of the cover can't go around the rudder, leaving the stern/gudgeon and the aft-most 12" of the amas exposed. The solution is to find the rear-most transom piece of the cover and, with a sharp knife, cut a slit down the middle of the tall skinny rear-most transom piece vertically from the top of that piece through the bottom seam. I cut the bag off, too. This allows the cover to surround and hug the stern/gudgeon and fasten under the boat, leaving enough drawstring to capture the aft points of the amas. That way, it fits the TI "like a glove". The Hobie TI cover probably fits perfectly out of the box but costs $170 more. The mods only took a few minutes, and I'm gonna save that $170 to take my wife out for a night on the town (or save for a spinnaker)!
