NXT22 Cover Water Pooling Issue

I have a 2016 NXT22 I cannot seem to get the cover support pole in the rear positioned far enough back to stop water from pooling (between the tower and the transom) every time it rains. I was instructed to strap to the bow and stern grab bars, however, I have also tried strapping the stern tower support. Neither is effective and there is not enough strapping to loop through the stern cleats. Anyone with an NXT22 that has been able to make this work with the stock supports? Seems crazy that a new boat (at this price point) would require an aftermarket solution.

Thought about that as well as the ones that connect to the tower -- just seems crazy to me that the oem setup isn't designed to work correctly without modification.

I was on a crew doing a regatta last week and was looking for you! We were in a 38' "A Scow". We took 2nd.

Yes, the rain here has been relentless. One thing I've done is to raise up my rear anti pooling pole using a 4x4 wood block. With yesterday's 3" rain, this only resulted in one tiny puddle-

I have the one that attaches to the tower from boat covers direct - hangtyte, I think it's called. It doesn't work any better than the webbing. Still sometimes get the pooling by the tower. Only ever the starboard side for some reason. Maybe you would have better luck with it on your 22.

We've got an nxt20 and were instructed that the back pole should be strapped through the cleats. Not sure if that would help, but possible.

Left the ski pylon in the socket and covered the boat today. I think this will fix the pooling issue for us. Will probably wear out the cover too in that one spot it maybe I can have it reinforced.

Put a towel over the ski pole. And then out h cover over it. Will pad the pole against the cover.

Unrelated to the pooling issue, but does anyone tow with the cover on? Any issues?

My old MB couldn't be towed with the cover on. It would scuff under the cover.

any circular disk over the top of the pole should help with premature wear I would think, or just a piece of foam.
