Spend the extra money and get a custom fit cover from www.skiboatcovers.com Especially if it is stored outdoors.

Sunbrella for sure. Well worth the couple of extra dollars. There is a picture of a Sunbrella waterline cover on my '88 here http://www.tmcowners.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=37

Are all the sunbrellas like that? The bottom would get soaked in the H2O on the weekends at my lake, and then i'd think the cover would get mildewie?sp?

That's a waterline cover meant to prevent sunfade on the gelcoat of boat stored outdoors. If you store your boat in the water, sunfade is something to consider and the cover getting wet is a side effect for sure.

You can go non waterline in Sunbrella as well. It will cover just to the rub rail.

The width of the boat at it's widest point is the "beam" or "width amidships" and it is 80" (6'-8"), according to the brochure!
