Wanted RIB cover

Taking delivery of 7.5m RIB (RibEye) and am looking for a cover.

Not too bothered about a tailored fit or anything, and don't mind a bit tatty, just really looking for something to throw over it when parked on it's trailer.

Tim

Tim, the cheap option is a tarpaulin, have a look at this from a while back. Given a choice I would opt for one of the cheaper material next time though. The heavy stuff with re-inforcing every 5mm didn't sew very well although it still useable 18 months on. I suspect that the lighter material might be easier to cut and sew even if it means using two pieces joined to cover the boat
