Canopy Lift Guide

Measuring for a Boat Lift Canopy Cover 

When ordering a replacement Boat Lift Canopy Cover, the best way to find what size you need is to check the current canopy’s tag for sizing and model information. If the tag is not available, you will first need to determine who manufactured your canopy lift frame. Once you have determined who the manufacturer of your frame is, you can begin to measure. Most canopy frames will need to be measured from the inside of the frame. The frame’s length will be measured in feet and the width in inches. Once you have measured, you will be ready to start searching for your new canopy cover. If you have any questions please feel free to call 1-888-726-9300, live chat with an expert or email us.
