Boat Cover Measurement Directions

Carver Industries instructions: Our online applications do not require measurements in order to determine the correct cover for your boat. If your boat is not listed online, you can simply call us (toll free (855) 701-7017) for assistance and pricing. If you prefer to use our online style finder, dimensions will be needed to make your selection. To find the centerline length, measure from the tip of the bow to the center of the stern. Add the length of any extensions, such as bow pulpits and transom brackets to the centerline length. To find the beam width, measure the widest point of your boat. Note that Styled-to-Fit® boat covers will stretch to fit the beam and centerline plus or minus 4 inches.
