Rib Cover WANTED 4.5 - 5m Boat

Any chance anyone has a heavy duty cover for a 4.5 m rib, mine is falling appart, would like a heavy duty one.

Looked at a cheap on on ebay, anyone know if they are any good.


How much does it cost to get one made?


Hope someone can help or have a spare on laying around.

Of course it is. They just measured a considerably bigger boat.

Give it a sideways tug and you might be able to get that sub-station under there aswell.

boat cover

I had to get a large cover as the boat is quite tall, as you can see it only just fitted at the tallest point, it's actually for a 22' to a 24' boat but mine is only17'.

Even if i could have afforded a made to measure i not sure i would have, four or five hundred pounds is a lot of money for a cover and this does the job just as well....

You're dead right. It'll do as good a job and if it should get damaged, you could chuck it, get another and still be quids in.
