Included with your purchase are two support poles. These poles should be spaced equally into your rod holders. These poles are designed specifically to keep weight and pressure off of the antennas and other equipment.
If VHF antennas or collapsible light poles are mounted on your hard top or t-top, fold them down to the rear before applying your boat cover. As you put the cover on, roll the cover between the antennas. After you spread the cover over the support poles, locate and open the slot which will allow your antenna to exit.
Each cover has a dual zippered entry on both the port and starboard sides of the boat. During installation, make sure the zippers are closed (you’ll have a much easier time).
Attach the sewn in bow strap to the bow eye.
Each hard top or t-top boat cover comes with a rope ratchet. This ratchet is used for tightening the draw rope that is in the hem of the cover in order to make the cover secure.
A reinforcement kit is included with every hard top or t-top boat cover purchase for added protection at sharp areas and stress points. Simply cut the material to size, peel the backing off, and stick it on the inside of the cover wherever you need extra reinforcement.
Tie down straps make storage easier, allowing you to secure your boat cover. Included are 12 black straps with quick release buckles.
When you aren’t using your cover, place it in the storage bag for safe keeping.

All Carver covers and Bimini tops are made right here in the USA in Landrum, South Carolina. For over 30 years, Carver has been a leader in the marine industry because of the exceptional quality of their handmade boat covers and Bimini tops.
Help preserve the value of your boat with a cover that is water repellent, mildew resistant, and UV resistant. Our boat covers are excellent for storage, either on dry land or in the water. All of our Carver boat covers (except T-Top only and kayak covers) include a free tie down kit which is made to aid in securing the cover to the trailer. Carver’s styled-to-fit and custom boat covers are trailerable unless otherwise noted. Materials offered are Poly-Guard, Sun-DURA, and Sunbrella, and warranties range from 5-10 years.
Our styled-to-fit covers are patterned with precision to ensure a great fitting and great looking boat cover. This is our most popular type of cover, and it is designed to fit your boats specific style and length. These styled-to-fit covers have shock cord (shock cord is like elastic, only much, much stronger) in the hem to provide a snug fit. In addition, if your boat has an outboard motor, your boat cover will come with a free attached motor cover (excluding boat covers for inflatables, which cover the boat and motor in one). Our styled-to-fit covers come with a guarantee of fit and satisfaction, as do all of our products!
Our custom covers are designed specifically for select boat models. They are made with the boats every contour in mind, ensuring a perfect fit. Custom boat covers come with a draw rope sewn into their hem, which usually exits at the stern, allowing you to pull the cover snug. If your boat has an outboard, your cover will come with either an attached or separate motor cover- call us for details on your particular cover.
All of our covers carry full warranties that protect you completely. We offer a price match guarantee, so you don't have to worry about price. If you find it cheaper elsewhere, please contact us. We will beat any competitors' price on the same item by $10!
We ship our covers direct to you quickly, many times the same day that you order. If your item is not in stock, it will take us no more than 5 business days to hand fashion your cover based on your order. You choose the color and material—we have many available.
We make it our mission not only to provide a cover for your boat, but to provide you with the RIGHT cover for your boat. Accept nothing less than a cover that will last for years to come and look great while doing so. Let our cover work for you—the only thing that you need to do is enjoy boating!
