We send you the frames first to offer up to your boat  (with telescopic adjusters and instructions )  You can see at once whether the frames will fit or not. If they do, telephone us with the measurement between the deck frame and the forward facing frame  We then  tailor make the cover to suit leaving the bottom edge big and unfinished. All you have to do is to clip the cover onto the 3 frames
cut and finish the bottom edge and fit it to the coachroof  with  turnbuttons, lift the dot  or press studs.
