Are you trying to disguise it or do you want a neat cover?

Not too bothered about the neatness. Id like to disguise it if I can. I live in a fairly decent area but you never know!

Your neighbourhood isn't the problem. It's the pikey bas*ards you need to be aware of. If they want it - they'll take it. Ensure you take adequate precautions to safeguard your property from an opportunist thief. As a minimum, I'd remove the wheels, fit a hitchlock and outboard motor lock. Regards covers... does your boat's maufacturer not make anything? At least you know it will fit.

I got my last tarp from Machine Mart. It wasn't far off the price of a blue ebay cover though.
