Mine was about 450.(via BHG) when I got the boat...another 4m adventure.

Never did understand why they didn't run it to go over the transom..?..all the run off just drops down into the boat

Nice looking cover, hopefully I will get one sorted soon as the one I got with the rib has ripped to shreds by the GPS cradle on the top of the console!

Did they take all the measurements or did you have to do it for them?

They come to your boat and talk through options and fits then do a stencil of cover and go away and price it depending on material etc, then make the one you want
