Weird, the one I got this summer when I bought mine does have the elastic band around the tower. I also have the ZFT2. I wonder if they updated the covers mid year?

@PatrickX2 - Try tightening the buckles that are below the tower on both sides. When you get it pulled down around the transom, around that red line, tighten the other four buckles. One in each of the tow hooks, one around the transom step and the last one tightens the entire cover along the bottom from bow to stern.

I am having the same issue as well, there isn't even enough canvas at the front to put saran wrap, an bungee cord, or anything. I am going to see what my dealer says when I take it in for winterization in a couple weeks. Let me know if anyone has a simple solution!

Not pretty but simple

We wrap a towel around the tower, then put the cover on. The towel takes up the open space, keeps out tree droppings and soaks up water

Bump...did you guys ever figure out how to resolve this? I am running into the same issue with my new MC with ZFT2. Have not had a chance to get it to the dealer for the 1st service since it won't stop raining here...both corner seats are soaked in the boat. I know my dealer will help me resolve this when I'm able to take it in, but would like to understand how you guys were able to resolve. I'll start with the towels as an interim fix, that sounds easy enough.

I have seen boat covers that have a neopreme boot with a zipper that is attached to the tower entry points. The neopreme boot is attached to the canvas opening and stretches around the tower leg, then zipped closed. Sorry no picture, but Im considering having these installed on my 2009 cover.
