Alternative storage bag for SIB?

Anyone have any ideas on a alternative storage bag for my Zodiac 340 FF? The carry bag/cover that comes with it is a waste of time as I just can't roll the boat up small enough to fit, even after pumping all the air out!
Ideas?

what about spliting one side of the bag and putting eyelets in so you can rope it tight ,or how about a + shaped piece of canvas or tarpaulin with some eyelets on the outer bit s so you can put a draw sting through ,spread it out put the rolled up boat in the centre then fold and pull tight until you get it how you want it , or just a square sheet with eyelets around the edge so it can be roped together ...there like tents .ok from new but try getting everything back in again and there always a bit left over that wont go in .

You could try someone like Hamble Cover Services, they would be able to make you one up to fit.

Thanks guys. I've found a tent ground sheet with eyelets. This allows me to roll the boat up in this and secure it. Also provides a big clean area for setting up etc.

My quicksilver one is fine - maybe people should consider things like this as well before purchase but they don't tell you in the brochures do they???
