Engine Covers

My local baot cover maker has made me a full cover for my Suzuki DF 140. The fabric used is called Sumbrela?? and is a breathable "canvas style" material that is in fact man-made (terylene??) and guaranteed for 5 years. I am VERY pleased with the resul and it cost less than 100.

Very good and look better value than the others. They are properly tailored, breathable and I am very pleased with it. I remember shipping was quite slow though ?

Wouldn't like to use one on a big engine at WOT... Arent there holes at the back of some cowlings for the engine air intake? Regardles sof how breathable they are I wouldnt use one while at high revs, but agree a great idea for laying up the boat

I have seen them on the TV. I really want one to slip over the cowling when not in use to keep the decals etc looking new etc.

Andy,
Just what I bought mine for > it also stops bird sh*&*^t damaging the finish.
I don't think they are designed for in-use - breathable simply means that you are less likely to get condensation problems on the engine.
Keeps the baby nice and cleanafter storage and trailering
