You might be good with the 12x12 Lenco tabs. The 12x18 (18 being the length) might give you too much tab(I can check with a few guys I work with and give you a better answer). It is usually more width the better, but I could be wrong.

By the way, your top looks great, Good Luck with 2010.

On their site, they recommend a 12 X 18 for your size boat. They have 2 one of which is an edge install.

Write to them just in case you have a warranty issue later on.

12 x 12

If you only have 12" between the bracket and the outside edge, I think that the 12 x 12 is your only choice. A 12 x 18 needs 18" of transom for attachment and if I understand your measurement, that's not going to work.

They are 12in wide and 18in long;)
We have them on the Cape Horn

Go with the longer ones
I wish ours were a little bigger!!

My 23 was the same way without tabs. Tabs made a huge difference. Call Dusky and see what they put on them.
