718 Gillgetter Pontoon Cover
This is a custom fit cover made specifically to fit Apex Marine Gillgetter Pontoon Boats. There are a lot of sites that say they have a cover to fit your Gillgetter but I assure you none will fit like this one. This is NOT a universal type cover to fit your boat. This cover was designed by our other company called American Canvas Products. American Canvas supplied Gillgetter with their covers from 2004 until 2014. This is a snap on cover. If your original cover with snaps was made my American Canvas Products then your new one will match up to almost ever stud/snap in your boat.
There are two different ways to build the cover when it comes to the snap on covers. We can leave the snaps off the new cover and send them separate. You can either but a hand held tool to install the button in the cover to match up to the studs in your boat, or you can take it to a local canvas shop and have them install the snaps in the cover. The other way we can send it is with the snaps installed in the cover. Seems risky right? It is a little. We have the original patterns that your original cover was made with and those patterns have the locations for the buttons. Most – NOT ALL – of the buttons will match up to what is on your boat – in most instances. What about the ones that don’t match up you may ask? We send along 1/2″ stainless pan head screws you can use to fill in the holes on the boat of any stud that needs to be moved. The main thing to consider when trying to decide if your cover should have the snaps installed or not is if your current cover is indeed an American Canvas cover.
American Canvas was the ONLY supplier direct to Apex Marine / Gillgetter from 2004-2014 – look for our sew in label in the back of your cover to be sure.
If you don’t know for sure if American Canvas made your original cover contact me and we can figure it out for you.
Regardless of which option you choose your hardware kit will have plenty of new studs.
The covers have cutouts to go around the bimini top frame.
The adjustable poles are included as well as vent caps installed in the cover.
