I am not taking a chance on the tubes this time. I detest the Scorpion covers, they show the dirt, they have cheap blue rope hanging from them and most are not suitable for use on the water. The local boat yard that deals with all the dry dockers pointed me in the right direction of the overall covers that excel and last on the ribs in their yard.... and the bonus was it was cheaper. So Sanders stepped up again!!!! Out of the whole refit so far I think I am happiest with the overall cover, its a masterpiece, able to be towed, left on boat on water and put on from on board, hooks on rubbing strake yet has an extended skirt to cover the tubes beyond halfway and an additional shock cord below for a non blow about fit. Additional fixing eyes to tie down in extreme weather and
Access is easy via rear zip and double poppered zip protector....

Oh i cant find the pics right now so you will have to wait

I doubt very much the colour is much different. Having a bit of clean boat OCD I have spent hours walking round boat yards inspecting other ribs to see how they show the dirt, even quizing owners on cleaning techniques.

Military Grey seems to be the colour to have........

Really looks great gtflash - have you been out in her since having the facelift - before anyone else comments I'm meaing the RIB's not gtflash - I'm sure his face is fine
