How to Measure Your Boat
When measuring your boat, use a non-stretching tape (such as a steel tape) to be sure you have accurate dimensions. To measure length and width, if your boat is on a trailer, you can lay the tape on the ground directly under the boat and eyeball the measurement. *NOTE: It's a good idea to measure your boat, even if you have the manufacturer's specifications from the owner's manual.
- Finding the Centerline Length - Measure from the tip of the bow to the center of the stern. If you have any extensions (swim deck, platforms, etc.), add their length to the centerline dimension if you want these extensions covered.
- Finding the Beam Width - Measure the widest point of your boat. For this measurement be sure to include the rub-rail.
- Our covers will fit boats with a beam and center-line measurement plus or minus 6 inches.
- Add 1 foot to the centerline length if your boat has rails exceeding 6 inches in height. Add one foot to the centerline length for trolling motor.
