Smile Custom cover help

I just installed a new tower on my 98 MC 205 X-Star, and wanted to get a custom cover with holes for the tower. Where is a good place to order one of those?

If your tower is a custom install, it's probably better to get one done by a local shop.
Look over this site: http://www.rankincovers.com
This type cover is best for these boats because they fit well enough to trailer with them at highway speeds & there is nothing to drill into your fiberglass (and then crack years later).

I have a couple of pics in my library of my custom cover. Key is having it very tight, especially around the rub rail. I tow with it, with absolutely no problems or wear issues.

Another option is to buy a cover off the net & have it modifed locally. I had my factory cover modified for my tower for like $50 a few years ago. Got me thru a couple more winters before I shelled out the big bucks for a good cover.

Seems like Jim at Bay Area Watersports (jim@baws.com) had some pretty good prices on covers with cutouts for covers. Don't know if any of these would fit, but you might PM him (he's a regular poster on here).
