    For our new 19 230SLX we opted for the mooring cover rather than the snap on covers. Anyone out there towed a newer SLX or SPX with the mooring cover? I’ve asked 2 people at the dealer and one said no problem & the other said they advise against it. We will be towing the boat about 2 hours away to go scalloping this coming weekend with half the trip on interstate (65mph) and the other part on 2-4 lane roads (55mph Max).

    Appreciate any insight. I will say the mooring cover seems with secure and tight with the tie down mechanism built into it.

    Yup, you're fine. It fits super tight.

    Thanks! Yes it’s very snug. That’s why I was surprised the one guy said not to. I prefer to trailer with it on if at all possible.
