I would like to get a new cover for my 97' 205. I really like the new covers with the ratchet straps. Can anyone tell me if I can get one for my 97? Any other cover suggestions?

IIRC, those ratchet covers came out around 2000 and the company that makes them for MC doesn't have any patterns for the older boats yet, unless someone set something up with them to have one custom made then the pattern will exist.

Check out Rankin- they should have a pattern for your boat. I got mine last year and its the highest quality cover Ive ever seen.

Theres a group buy running on Planet Nautique (http://planetnautique.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=10634) on for these covers right now.

The bulk buy on the Planet Nautique website is in that $700 neighborhead depending on the size. I did not go that route and paid a little more.

You could have saved a few $$$$ and bought from www.skiboatcovers.com . A sunbrella waterline would have been $630.00 and the regular cover only $525.00. Everybody on here raves about them and all say they are top quality product. I plan on ordering mine from them here in the near future.

I wanted something without all the straps and cords hanging off of the sides. I keep my boat in a lift all summer and very rarely trailer it. While the boat lift has a canopy I still cover it during the month of June because of the pollen here in Wisconsin.

Sorry that you are getting some mis information here. Your 97 HULL has the same upper deck as the current X-1. yours being a direct drive vs a V-drive. The current X-1 cover will fit your boat just fine. It even has the ratchets that you want. Retail on the cover is almost $800. I can probably help you out with price...but the X-1 cover will fit

Call me if you are interested.
