Boat cover question

I just picked up a Brig Falcon 360L with a console. The boat is just under 12 feet long. I'm looking for a boat cover for her, but not sure what size I'd need to accommodate the console. Any thoughts or experience with this?

Loads of folk use these, I've just bought a new cover after three years out of the old one. at 75 for 3 years well worth it.

Those look nice but I have the same problem. How much do I add to the length to accommodate the height of the console? I can't get a cover for a 12 foot boat when there is a console sticking up 2 feet above the tubes.

Is it as simple as just taking a piece of rope from the nose, over the console, over the outboard, to the end of the tubes, measuring that and saying a I need a cover for a boat that long?

Looking to see how other folks have figured this out.

The covers are made to accommodate consoles etc. Personally I've got a 5m rib with a console probably about 2 foot high, or more, (not measured it) and the cover is fine, I went for a 20 to 22 foot cover. They are elasticated and fasten over and under the boat to get a good fit. The A frame is a problem, but then that's up to you to decide if you want to cut it to accommodate etc.

Mine fits to just under the tubes and is fine, (sorry no photo to hand)

If I was you I'd mail them with your dimensions and ask for advice there, I'd guess they are well used to this type of query.

great fitting cover

my boat has a center console of about 46 inches in height and my cover fits great. no problems because of the center console.
