Transom arch / Cover

Hello all,

New to the forum today so if i ask anything really obvious, bear with me!

I've just purchased a 4.0m Honwave with a 15hp Mariner, having had bigger boats in the past and spent criminal amounts of money on fuel and moorings, we've decided that we can have just as much fun being on the water in something like this!!

I've got a couple of questions that I'm hoping you may be able to help with....I'm after a cover if anyone has any suggestions, the genuine Honda one is quite expensive! I'm also wondering whether a transom arch is available for something this size as I'd like something to put some Nav lights on (or another alternative if there is one?).

Thanks

Mark

Welcome to Ribnet

A light pole would be easier, and you could probably make it telescopic.

Do a google search for a ducksback cover.

Hi,

I am looking at getting myself an A Frame too for my rib, which is a 4.2m. I've been given quotes to have one made around the 450 mark, however if you have a peek at the thread below you will see there is a seller on ebay that does one suitable for small boats that doesnt break the bank at 150 for 38mm Stainless 316.

Here is the thread A frame Idea for little rib

Here is the ebay page. eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

PS, welcome to the forum.

Ducksback covers are good and some of the generic ones have a bit of slack which helps if you are storing long term with the outboard on.

For our use where the cover is mainly used to make our posessions a little less obvious in the day or keep sun off the tubes for beach picnics etc the Honwave cover is the business. Bit expensive but heavy quality material and very nice tight fit. Has a velcro flap to allow it to fit perfectly around a mounted outboard too. Silvery light grey fabric reflects the sun well.

See second image in this thread..
