2014 Cover Leaks around ZFT4 legs

Does anyone have any suggestions to eliminate or reduce water leaking around the ZFT4 tower legs with MasterCraft factory cover? This cover does not go over the top of the tower but it does Velcro around the legs of the tower.

There is a post on here somewhere - The guy had an marine canvas shop so on long sleeves to go further up the tower leg.

I just ordered and got a mooring cover, from Mastercraft that fits over the tower in the down position. No leaks now. I had the same problem

I park my Prostar outside, so I had a 2nd cover made for maximum protection from water and sun. The cover is not the prettiest but it serves its purpose when parked. The boat stays bone dry after any rain.

My tower legs are much smaller than your 2 point tower. But you could stop at an upholstery shop and see if they can extra some extra sleeve material.

I think these are the pics MattsCraft was referring to - I saved them so I could send over to the local upholstery shop this winter
