Blue Ebay covers again

Can anynone advise on the right size of blue cover I need for my 5.3 Ribcraft.
I followed the measuring instructions - width rubbing strake, over the top of console to rubbing stake - 3.4m. Overall length bow to sponson tip - again over the console & seats 6.25m (20'6)".

I orignally bought the size 5 which should cover up to 22' last year but it's not big enough & I want one that does cover the entire boat, being abe to gather it around the A-frame and cover both sponsons. The current cover just about lets me cover one of them.

Before I go spending more dosh on a new cover I want to ensure I get the right one this time. Will the size 6 - upto 24' do this, or do I need the large size 7 24'-26'. Will the size 7 swamp the boat with excess material, or will it allow me to use it to cover the engine and loop round the A-frame? i'm inclining towards the big size 7 & bundle up the excess around the stern somehow somehow - is this a reasonable plan?

Thanks in advance

RIBase
Size 7 is the right size for my 7.8m rib, so it'd swamp a 5.5m

Hi I am still looking for a cover for my Bombard Aerotec 380, do you have a link to the covers on eBay that you mention so I can see if they have one to suit? Cheers Will

I will need a cover for a 4.8m rib so if you want to sell the old one drop me a line.
