The Makers of the Easy Cover

Somewhere on a lake in southeast Michigan, engineer and designer Bruce Jones had a problem: he was reluctant to take his watercraft out for a spur-of-the-moment ride. Unsnapping and uncovering the boat was just too tedious and time-consuming. Jones knew there had to be a better, more efficient way. Thus, the Easy Coverô was born.

Jonesís career has been centered around improving how things work, be it general production processes or the actual moving nuts and bolts of an operation. Optimizing his own leisure time was a natural progression for Jones. Years in the automotive convertible top industry undoubtedly helped Jones bring his idea to life.

Evolving from initial concept to design to prototype, the Easy Coverô became reality. From the original prototype with a hydraulic system, Jones has designed the Easy Coverô to be a completely electric and automated power pontoon boatcover. It transitions with the click of a button on its wireless key fob in a mere 45 seconds.

The Easy Coverô is the solution to getting more enjoyment and use out of your pontoon with several available settings:

Cover for full cover and protection from the sun and other elements

Single or Double Bimini for full or partial sun

Bridge Mode for more shade or traveling under overhead obstructions


To market and sell the Easy Coverô, Jones partnered with Mike Apling, business principal at Devilís Lake Water Sports, to form Vision Marine Products in 2016.

Installing the Easy Coverô onto several of the Crest model pontoons at Devilís Lake Water Sports has provided consumers the opportunity to see it in action. This outlet has brought Vision Marine Products tremendous success, allowing the business to expand. Vision Marine has now converted the Easy Coverô to work on Bennington pontoon models.

Jones and Apling have seen the potential the Easy Coverô has at boat shows where theyíve featured the Easy Coverô. The excitement generated by people seeing the Easy Coverô transition from one mode to the next in less than a minute shows the possibilities for the future of Vision Marine Products.

In response to the overwhelming success of the Easy Coverô so far, Vision Marine Products have secured two other dealers in the region to sell the Easy Coverô: Dry Dock Marina in Angola, Indiana and Lakeside Motorsports in Mecosta, Michigan.

The success of the Easy Coverô has been outstanding since Vision Marineís inception. As more dealers sell the power pontoon cover, the more lines and models of pontoon boats are fitted with the Easy Coverô. The future of Vision Marine Products is a bright one.
