Covers for party barges and deck boats may either fully cover the entire boat, or Black Dog Design can manufacture covers for the individual elements of the boat, such as the console, the top, or the upholstery.  All offer good protection for your boat during periods of non-use. During the times that your boat is in the water, your expensive trailer is subject to rain and sun exposure.  Consider a custom cover for this important part of your investment. Here are recent articles describing various boat cover projects completed by Black Dog Design, Inc. This custom drop skirt blends with the manufacturers covers and protects the sides of the boat from its nose all around, including the swim platform.
Much of Black Dog Design’s work can be seen in this photograph of sailboats at Mountain Harbor. The photograph above shows boat covers, bimini tops and frames, mainsail covers, line bags, helm covers, and even a cover to protect the boat name on the stern from the elements. The custom covers on this Hunter sailboat not only protect the mainsail, cockpit and bimini, but there is also a cover to protect the boat’s artwork on its stern!
All projects are custom and require careful measurement and the making of patterns prior to cutting and sewing the fabrics. This was a special order barge from Veranda Boat Company whose customer wanted to be able to use the boat in all seasons.  Veranda came to Black Dog Design to provide this special enclosure.
The clear enclosure with replaceable screen panels allow the owners of this party barge to enjoy it all year! Screened panels can replace the clear windows in the enclosure for bug-free breezes in the summertime.
The wonderful thing about clear enclosures is how easily they heat up with very little sun in cold weather.
The very sweet couple who bought this new boat wanted us to make a boat cover to protect their new toy.


After the cover was complete, they decided to add a drop skirt for the side from nose to stern to cover the entire starboard side for sun protection. The skirt is removable for towing the boat, yet the boat can be towed at highway speeds with the cover in place. Our customers purchased this fine cruiser, but they were not happy with the canvas work that came with it. This snap-on, tight-fitting tonneau cover is secure enough for the boat to be towed at highway speeds. The cover fits securely enough that the boat can be towed at highway speeds with the cover in place. We were able to style the additional skirt to work with what he had.  Click on a photo below to see larger images of this project. This cover features ratchets instead of snaps to quickly and easily secure the cover over the entire barge’s body.
This particular customer asked for an extra zip-on section in the back to protect the pontoon area as well. Black Dog Design is located near beautiful Lake Ouachita, Arkansas, about 25 miles west of Hot Springs, AR, at the intersection of Highway 270 and Mountain Harbor Road. These are a collection of examples of some of the projects I have completed over the course of my degree, Bachelor Of Design 1st Class Hons. Bimini frames can be fabricated according to customers’ wishes and the space available on the boat.
The great thing about screen or scrim panels is that there is airflow through the boat, but bugs cannot get in. And, this cover is basically as easy to use as a regular cover, only it has more fabric involved.


The cover actually ratchets under the bottom rail of the boat and covers the entire body as well as the motor. I marked the center section where I wanted to add a leg to support the spine and rest on the middle seat, and added a T-fitting there. Connects with straps beneath Top frame and covers entire boat and motors(s) from bow to stern, Avoid Mold and Mildew with our unique design which draws air in from the sides and around the motor(s), where it warms, rises and passes out beneath the top to remove humidity and moisture (click video at right), Great in Snow. The customer shipped the clear panels back to Black Dog Design, and they were used for a pattern to make the screen enclosure panels. The scrim also has a sun protection factor and is a good choice for people who have sun issues yet still need to be out on the water with nature. Just glue a 48" section into the T-fitting that fits the bow and a 4-way fitting onto the other end. Sure they make support poles for such things, and they were right there in the same store isle I found the cover in. Initial installation takes about 15 minutes to adjust straps to top, installation only takes 5-10 minutes thereafter. Power Poles often fit behind the TTopCover™, but sometimes need a small cutout at the bottom, or a hole to pass the Power-Pole through (see photos at right), Trolling Motor? We recommend that you pull your trolling motor back into the boat so that the cover does not collect water up front.
