How do you clean a large boat cover? I have this cover that is for my 25' eliminator daytona that is very large and very dirty. Is there a company that does them? Any help would be greatly appreciated Thx..

It sounds like boat cover washing season just started in Havasu yesterday. Having the boat covered outside during a monsoon seems to be a way to get one washed.

Sent from a van down by the river.

I've cleaned mine by hosing off the driveway first then spread out the cover and use a mild detergent and a soft scrub brush.
After scrubbing it rinse it off and put it back on the boat to dry and it will conform to the shape of the boat nicely.

I used the laundromat in their giant washer then let it air dry worked great for me.
This^^

It costs like 4 bucks in quarters and bring your own soap. Then I hang mine with clamps in the garage and blast a fan on it with the door open till dry

I have a 25 daytona as well. I've tried several places, finally I found a laundromat near me that has an 8 load washer. I put it in there and it works bitchin. I run it in the biggest dryer I can find as well for about 15 mins, unfortunately you have to flip it about every minute in the dryer to prevent it from balling up. Bring it home and put it on the boat and it's the cleanest I've ever got mine. Check out my thread from a while back.

Dry cleaner / laundromat on the south side down by Montana’s steak house does them for cheap, not worth doing yourself for what they garage, buck a foot I think it was.

Mine is 28'. I drape it over my truck in the hot weather and spray it down. Then turn it inside out and do it again. Dries pretty quick.
