How to measure your boat for a Covermate boat cover
When choosing a Covermate Semi-Custom Boat Cover, you'll need to measure your boat to ensure a proper fit. Don't depend on your boat's model number for the correct size. Boat model classifications do not accurately indicate the boat length. In order to select the proper size cover, you must measure your boat!
Measure your boat's center-line length
Your boat's center-line length is the straight measurement from bow to stern, not including the motor. Please note that measurements should include allowance for excessive bow rail heights, trolling motors, and transom platforms and ladders. Do not measure up and over the windshield....
Measure your boat's beam width
Your boat's beam width is the widest distance across the boat in a straight flat line. The boat's widest point is generally in the windshield area. Do not measure up and over the windshield.
Find your boat style in the "Shop By Boat Type" menu
Choose the boat description which best represents your style of boat. Next select the appropriate length and beam. If your length measurement matches the max. length, it's recommended that you move up to the next size. If you still are having difficulty determining the correct size, please call us at 1-888-683-7866 and one of our technicians will be happy to assist you.
