Has anyone purchased a Calmark cover for their Escape 19?

I bought a Calmark for my 17, and am pleased with it. I, too, send them my measurements.

I use foam pipe insulation around the perimeter of the solar panel to protect the cloth from sharp edges. The solar even continues to provide a small charge through the cloth.

We've only had a Calmark cover for our 19 for a couple of months but so far so good. It seems very well made and Calmark has a great reputation. They were so busy we had to wait 5 weeks for it, though!

I wonder if they have the measurements on record for an Escape 19. We won't be able to take measurements until we are back from our trip at the end of September.
