O - 5 COCKPIT COVER
The 378 Vista’s optional cockpit cover is used to cover
the complete cockpit area and is intended as a short
term storage cover.
Install bimini top, forward windshield connector and
bimini side curtains as previously instructed.
Remove the canvas boot from the camper top.
Snap the forward edge of the cockpit cover to the
bottom edge of the windshield track. Snaps can be
adjusted on the windshield track if necessary.
Unscrew the camper boot retainer knobs from each
side of the radar arch. This will release the camper
retainer bows and camper from its stored position.
Be sure to be supporting the camper top to prevent
it from deploying prematurely. Reinsert retainer
knobs into arch for safe keeping.
Snap the cockpit cover sides to the deck and arch.
Secure the rear corners and aft edge of the cockpit
canvas. This is done with the use of snaps and
straps which are placed around the transom rail and
age the canvas as well as the canvas hardware.
Place the adjustable poles in position. The adjust-
able poles are provided to adjust the canvas for taut-
ness and prevent puddling.
Extend the primary camper bows aft until taut and
attach the aft secondary camper bow to the rear
most deck mounts.
To store the cockpit cover we recommend folding the
cover in half, lengthwise and then rolling the cover up.
With the velcro straps supplied, attach the retainer
bows to the primary bows when camper is deployed.
This will prevent the retainer bows from racking
around loose and possibly damaging the arch or

When an engine is running, a natural vacuum may exist
with the right wind and sea conditions to allow exhaust

the boat. When canvas is utilized, this compounds the
possibility of this occurring and inhibits natural ventila-
tion. For more information, refer to Section B-2 - Carbon
Monoxide in this manual.
Zip the camper side curtains to the camper top.
Snap the edge portion of these curtains to radar
arch and the deck. It may prove easiest to start
snapping the curtains at the upper portion of the
arch and work your way down and then along the
The carbon monoxide in exhaust fumes can be hazard-
ous. It is important for you and your passengers to be
aware of the potential safety hazard created by exhaust
fumes. Familiarize yourself with the symptoms of indi-
viduals overcome by carbon monoxide, and most impor-
tantly, ways you can protect yourself and your guests.
