Console cover maker?

I'm off to the boat show on Tuesday and looking to source a maker of covers for my console. If anyone knows of any such people/businesses for a comparison before the show, I'd appreciate details. I only have a winter cover for the entire rib and it's tedious and unnecessary for summer use.

I'd also appreciate details of where I might find a good quality prop bag thats big enough. The 'superstore' dayglo ones are thin and tear easily. I've noticed a few ribs around with more decent versions but haven't been able to buttonhole the owners yet.

Your thoughts as always appreciated...

Sainsbury's make an excellent prop bag it's called a bag for life and it's the strong orange carrier bag they sell at the checkout. 10 pence to you sir.


If however you have to pay more then go to Steel developments at the boat show and buy some prop sox. Nifty bits of kit.


Flew sails in Porchester will make you a console cover and I think there is a company called Custom Covers in Southampton.
