New marine vinyl can emit gases that may cause color transfer between fabrics and vinyl. This can result in a permanent color change to vinyl materials. It is not advisable to use a cover on a boat with a new interior until the vinyl has cured for at least 4 weeks. The same issue can arise from any fabric contact with vinyl, including collapsed Bimini tops and fabric seat cushions. Degradation or color transfer from boat cover fabric or Bimini top fabric to new marine vinyl is not covered by National Covers warranty.
