I know the towers look different, but im not sure how they affect the cover mounting?

Does anyone know why they have a 2006 cover for the X1 and a 2007 cover for the X1....

Thanks

tower holes will be in different spots. 2006 cover wont fit a 2007, and vice versa

Could someone measure the distance between the end of the windshield and the front of the back tower mount, and from the windshield to back of the tower mount. Id like to see if there is any difference between the 2 towers where the back feet are mounted. I can get an 07 cover for 1/3 the price of a 2006 cover.

Even if the feet mounts are more open on the 07 cover i dont mind, as long as they line up.

thats what it looks like to me, i have the 2005-2006 tower on my X2 (same boat, obv). I know the tower base is also alot larger. Comparing my rear leg base to my buddy's 2009 tower base, there's no way that my cover would go over it.

That being said, if its that much of a price difference buy the 2007 cover and take it to a canvas shop, they can probably make the necessary mods for you

maybe someone with and 07 X1 can measure for me.

My boat is in my storage unit BUT I happen to have my cover with me (2007 X1). This may or may not help but the distance between tower leg holes is as follows:

Center point of front tower leg cut out to center point of rear tower leg cutout is approx 66".

The opening ("velcroed" together) for the front tower leg cutout/hole is approx 2 3/4".

The opening for the rear tower leg cutout/hole is approx 10".

My 2007 X1 cover has the velcro that goes around the leg holes followed by the plastic snap/connector with each of these connected to independent rear ratchets.

Hope this helps.....

The cover sounds similar. I will measure. I heard from someone the front legs are mounted differently? Im trying to find a pic.

Thanks a lot im going to measure my cover when i get home also. Those pictures are kinda convincing me the 07 cover would fit a 06 but an 06 cover would not fit an 07 without having to open up the rear tower leg cut outs.

I found a retailer who sells SurLast cover in "sand" for close to 1/3 the cost of the sunbrella from inboardboatcovers.com

Reading about the surlast material its seems to be of equal quality. The covers are specifically for certain models of Mastercrafts. It's a water line cover with ratched system similar to the MC OEM cover. Has vents and trailiering ability as well anti pool sticks.

yea which was the site everyone was offering. I guess its not 1/3 off, comes out to $385 shipped.

so i got the measurements.

My rear tower leg starts at 6inches from the end of the windshield, and ends 12inches from the end of the windshield.

The 07 tower starts 7 1/8 inches away from the windshield and ends 18 inches from the windshield.

So to me it seems like the slits would be bigger for the 07 and should be able to fit it on.

What do you guys think?
