    My 212 cockpit cover is cut out for the Bimini top, so I can do just what you are talking about. Mine seems to have come from the factory that way.

    My bimini stows covered on the rear sundeck, so my cover goes over the whole thing. But it's a custom cover...I don't think the stock cockpit-only cover has enough 'room' in it for doing it this way. You may end up having to get a custom one made.
    Table Rock Lake is my home away from home, and big block power rules.

    my top that i had custom made folds down to the back seat and swim platform and the cockpit cover and the full cover go over the top ,i just undue it with quick connects and let it lay down and then put what ever cover on that is needed for what i am using the boat for.

    Thanks for the help I was thinking of having my cockpit cover cut out as you describe just concerned about if I would still be able to trailer it without getting too much air under cover and loosing it on the road or destroying it .

    My bimini will lay down with the cockpit cover on. Though, it will not stand on the back posts with it on.
