There is a dvd that came with your owners manual about how to put the cover on. It's probably worth watching regardless, but it will at least show you the sleeves that John is referencing. Right down the center of the cover. One in the center of the bow area and one centered behind the tower.

Appreciate everyone's help. These sleeves were definitely left off my cover. The marina where I purchased the boat is going to order a new cover from Mastercraft. Thanks again for the help.

Good to hear, hopefully it doesn't take too long. When I got my boat, the cover was ripped so the dealer had to order a new one. It took two months for me to get the replacement.

Glad you are getting it worked out.

So here is the latest from the dealer. My cover should have come with two more caps, just like the one on the bottom of my pole. From that top cap, there are straps that go from the hand rails in the bow to the front pole, from the front pole to the back pole, and from the back pole to the hand rails in the back of the boat by each speaker. The cover then just sits on top of those poles/straps. They are going to order me the parts, but I think I might just take the cover to our local upholstery guy and have him sew those top pole caps into the cover with a little reinforcement so I don't have to mess with this web of straps. I don't really need the poles since the boat sits on a covered lift all summer so I don't get water pooling on the cover, but nice to know I got everything I paid for.

Not sure I agree with your dealer. The system they describe is for the older covers, like my 2015. The new style (2019 for me) has the top caps made into the cover and does not require straps. In fact, there is no place to attach the straps on the top caps if you had them. It may not matter in the end but I would want the correct cover and do not think you should have to pay to have them attached.
