New to the site, just picked up a new AR195. My cover is holding water in the bow. Two supports are installed with the straps tight and the ratchet strap is snug. Just seems like there is just enough slop in the cover to allow water to pool over the Yamaha decal. Any suggestions?

How far forward is the front cover support? I just picked up my new SX190 from the dealer on Saturday, rained pretty hard here yesterday and last night, don't have any pooling by the front Yamaha logo.

Two white straps determine how far back the bow post sits. They dont seem like they can be adjusted. Black straps in the back are adjustable.
Makes sense to move the bow post forward so the water doesnt pool.

On mine, the white straps are wrapped around the front cleats several times, maybe to move the post more forward. I can't say for sure though, because upon pickup, the posts were in the boat already, and the dealer had the very front of the cover on the boat, so the could still go through the boat with me. Took the cover off Saturday, but again only rolled it up to the front, so I could show family the boat with out taking the whole cover off.

Not to insult anyone, but are the poles fully extended? They are telescoping poles.

Ok, the pole is too far forward. You'll need to adjust it. Are the white straps connected to the cleats?

This is my boat, I was showing OP, how my cover was setup, when I picked it up at the dealer and I do not get any pooling on the cover. Been raining not stop since Sunday here in NE

Oh, ok. Born and raised in NE, understand rain. Ask the dealer for the bow cover pole.

Just an idea and my 2 cents, do u have the front jack as high as it will go?

Just an idea: are you running the center support strap (between the support poles) over the center window? I have a 2019 AR190 and the premium cover hasn’t allowed any pooling with the strap running over the window.
