How To Measure Your Centerline Length

Centerline Length Quick Tips:

To measure the centerline length, stand inside the boat and run a measuring tape from "tip to tip" (tip of the bow to tip of the transom) through the center of the boat. Note: Do not measure up and around the windshield - measure straight through the center of the boat.

Add the length of any installed accessories that should be covered by the boat cover (such as bow pulpits, jack plates, and extended swim platforms) to the centerline length.

Example - A boat has a centerline length of 22 feet. A bow pulpit that measures 3 feet in length is installed on the boat. For the cover to fit properly, the correct centerline length for the boat would now be 25 feet (original centerline length + length of bow pulpit).
