    I have measured it many ways and because of the seats that are in it I can't find any that will fit it.The covers all catch water in them and eventually tear.Thanks for the reply:0a31:

    You might have to put a couple cover props to help pick up the low spots. Plus don't put it on to tight that will cause it to tear.

    Try using thru hull fittings in your cover at the places where it holds water, then run hose from the fittings to the bilge, and let it run out the drain. Ya just gotta keep the leafs out of it so it can flow. If you want perfect fit you'll have to get custom made.$$$$$

    position your seats in a way that water will run off and it will work.

    are you covering it on a trailer? I have a very similar lowe 16' jon that i got a cover from cabelas for a 17-18' boat... if i cinch it down tight it works great... Unfortunately a store bought cover is never going to fit perfectly though... custom made cover is the only way to do that.
