Taylor Made Products Expands Line of Boat Covers

 with the BoatGuard® ECLIPSE



            GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – January 9, 2008 – In addition to their extensive line of boat covers, Taylor Made Products has created the BoatGuard® Eclipse, a fully trailerable boat cover.

The Eclipse is made of heavy duty, 6.25-ounce premium polyester fabric. It is available in two-tone charcoal and silver and contains tie-downs to securely fit the boat and prevent wind rippling while the boat is being trailered. Sewn-in vents allow for air circulation and included support pole prevents the fabric from pocketing. A storage bag is included to stow the cover when not in use. Eclipse has a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.

The Eclipse comes in a range of sizes, from 75 inches to 102 inches in width and 12 feet to 23 feet in length, and will work on a range of boat styles, including aluminum fishing boats, V-hull runabouts, bass boats, center consoles and small cuddy cabins.

“The Eclipse boat covers were designed to meet customers’ requests for high-quality, hassle-free boat covers for small boats,” said Dave Karpinski, vice president of marketing, Taylor Made Products. “This is a complete ‘cover in a box.’ Everything is included - vents, support poles, tie-downs and cover. No extra purchases are needed.”
