advice on ebay blue covers

Anyone got any advice on buying a blue cover from ebay to suit the ribcraft 585?

A size 6 looks adequate to fit to the tubes exterior, 95 inch exterior tubes beam against the covers estimated 106inch?

Anyone with a similar sized boat and cover?

For my 4.8m Tornado I needed to buy the one for 17-19ft boats.
If that helps.

Hi I have same boat. It depends on your consol. Check measuring over the top to below your tubes then pick the size. The place they are skimpy is there and it is no use unless you get proper cover. Hope that helps. Cheers j
