You know I had a quote from Southampton boat show for a cover - a very nice cover, but a cover all the same , and for a 6m boat I was quoted something like 2-3,000!!

Personal preference but I would never tow with a cover, even just a jockey seat cover as they will get damaged, chafe or the eyelets will tear.

Must get my garage extension concrete slab laid soon and free up the patio!
Sorry for the late reply, I've been "off grid" for a few days. Just catching up with the comments. How old is you cover and was it originally for a Mercury 420?
I can't quite tell from the picture, but does it "clip" to the hull or do you have to tie it underneath the whole boat?
Thanks, Sam

The original owner got it with the Ocean Runner 420 boat package. It ties to the trailer in 6 places, the 460 cover I now have has clips and thin elastic cord around the hull which doesn't work as well. The elastic needs to be as strong as a bungee for it to have any chance.
