Tough Duck Outdoor Products offers a great way to protect your engine from dirt, sunlight and other damaging elements through its complete line of outboard covers. The covers are available in a choice of two materials: Original (durable, lightweight, polymeric-impregnated polyester) and Ultimate (solution-dyed, breathable Sunbrella fabric). Both materials repel water and dirt, and resist mildew and ultraviolet rays. Tough Duck covers feature non-scratching Velcro straps and zippers for a secure fit while towing, and half covers are available for in-water protection. Retail prices for full covers start at $83.60.
