Taylor Made® T-Top Boat Covers without Bow Rail
The instructions are impossible to understand and the photos offer no details to help with the bad instructions. The portion around the console does not even come close to fitting our boat (Mako 184) and in no way will keep rain and snow out of the boat with the huge gaps around the console and near the motor. Not at all happy with this product.

So far, So good
I have only had this cover for two weeks so please understand these are initial impressions.
Ordered the 20' - 21'5" and it fits my 2010 Key West 211CC, with low bow rail and factory center console like a glove! The first week on it went through some serious Florida summer storms and seemed to keep the boat bone dry. So far I am quite satisfied and recommend it.
It goes together quickly. Like others have said the means for attaching it beneath the CC takes a few extra minutes to figure out the best method. This is no real issue considering it is a "semi-custom" cover. Additionally, it has about 19 strap locations but only comes with 10 straps. Straps that are provided are quite long and in some locations can accomodate two buckles depending on trailer. Buckles are on loops so you could use rope for additional tie downs, or make your own with webbing material from local cloth / hobby store as I did.
The only functional issue was between the steering wheel and leaning post where water wanted to collect. Easily fixed with a support to "tent" the area for water runoff.
Trailering: I pulled to and from yard with the cover on at no more than 45 mph. No issues. But I would not haul over a long distance simply because of drag and fuel mileage.

Everything as advertised, fits really well and, once you have it setup to fit your boat, it installs fairly easily. Could use better engineered buckles at the stress points but seems durable, time will tell.
