OCA are good but not cheap. They often have offers on around boat show time.

Look for a local canvas/sail shop. They can make one for you. Usually affordable and choice of quality materials.

These people advertise on facebook I've not seen them in person but the fitted covers look ok.
If its just a storage cover rather than a fitted cover to stay on permanent there are several on ebay from a tenner upwards

I would suggest you go for the OCA ones -> LINK

I would be concerned that one made by a sailmaker might not fit very well and might cause damage to the outboard cowl.

The OCA one are cheaper if you don't have manufacturers logos on them.

We've had a few of them now and they work very well.

+1 for OCA. I have a cowling cover for my Yamaha F70 which is a really good fit. Hides a crack in the cowling!!

Another vote for OCA. Really good quality products. I just ordered two more for two new outboards today. Great customer service.

Outboard Protection covers

OCA are brilliant covers.
Had two now and been very pleased with them. They are expensive but in my opinion worth it
