Console/Seat Cover

Instead of paying through the nose to get these from the manufacturers or having them tailor-made, I got a Garden Swing Seat cover (2 seater) from Homebase and turned lengthways perfectly covers the console and front seat.
It has a draw string around the base to secure it. Perfect for 14.95

Damn good idea.

So here's the challenge!

Can anyone find a supplier or manufacturer of this type of cover (console and seats) that can provide standard sizes that are marine quality at resonable prices like on the Rib Cover thread?

Those B&Q jobbies are OK, but a little light weight aren't they, well the ones I've seen! I was thinking of something of the same material these boat covers are made out of, much more substantial.
