Hi. I recently bought a Kruger Sea Wind and am looking for some info about spray covers. I can’t find any dimensions for the aluminum bows used to support it. RedLeaf is making a cover for me, but they do not have any data about the supports themselves.
If someone has a set, I’d really appreciate some measurements of each one, from where they rest on top of one eye-loop to the top edge of the other loop would be perfect, I can figure the arch bend from that, as well as add additional for going through the loop.
The photo shown is one I found online, but Jeremy at RedLeaf says those bows in the picture are exactly what the cover is designed to use.
Thank you, Bryan in Florence WI

Hi Bryan. If I can get access to my friends real sea wind I'll reply here with the lengths of the 3 ribs. I made my cedar strip sea wind similar to the real thing, but I can't remember if I altered the lengths or locations of the ribs. I think they're the same since I used his spray skirt as a template for mine. The lengths of my ribs are 20, 23, 24" from font to back with an extra inch on each end narrowed to fit inside the pad eyes. Depending on the age of your sea wind some of the dimensions may have changed. It might be worthwhile to wait until you have the spray skirt to make sure you get it as tight as possible. I would probably make them each too long, then size accordingly based on how tight you want the skirt on the boat.

I forgot to mention that the ribs are 3/4" wide and 1/8" thick aluminum strap, which are the same as Verlen Kruger made them.

Thank you very much Mark. Those dimensions will certainly get me really close. Yes, I'll be waiting until I have the cover for final fitting. Also knowing that they are 3/4" x 1/8" helps too, I was guessing 1" x 1/4". My hull #141 (deep version) was made in November 2001, finished to order for the previous owner. Future trip (s) at least a full year in the future, so I'm not rushing with anything.
YOUR cedar build looks very nice and I'm sure it gets constant attention whether on the rack or in the water. Well done!
Thank you for your help, Bryan
