May be difficult because the stern is curved but just a thought. Wouldn't want any chance of the rod making contact with the gel. I have a ND mini on the way for my prostar so thanks for the help with that. Hopefully Wayne has it done by now. Getting it made 150mm shorter just to be fussy. I want to help you sort your problems out so I can order a cover.
Can't go wrong with the ND. To me it's the only option. Are you getting a bimini? Since you are being fussy you might want to customize the bimini. I discussed this a little (with photos) elsewhere, I think in the ND tower thread.
Regarding cover shipping to OZ, I started writing out some recommendations but it started getting long. Drop me a line when the time comes and I'll try to help things go smoothly for you. I probably should put some things in the thread to help everyone else (and Coversports) but I don't have time today.
