I have one of these on my 6.3m Northcraft:

Not a bad fit around the bow and stern area but it could do with being wider where the console is (my console is tall with a high screen). Quality is very acceptable for the price. I have also seen the covers mentioned by Andy above, which are also very good for the price (same issues with fitting on my RIB though because of the console height).

Personally I prefer silver covers because they keep the tubes cooler in the sun. There are a couple of different makes on eBay.

Excellent value.
Are these suitable for use when towing the RIB?

I don't see why not but I havent tried.

You can tie them down as tight as you like. Should be okay and the price would make it worth a try.

If you want a made to measure cover, contact BROOKES, just off A55 at Penmama (wrong spelling I know)
Tel: 01492 622685

PS. I never tow with cover on, it stretches the stitchin and can cause rub marks on craft.

Nick

The cover in your photo looks different to the one that I purchased. Yours looks wider than mine, especially over the A frame. Mine also has a section cut out at the back to fit around the motor, while yours looks like it is cut square at the back. Is it definately the 20-21ft model, from the same supplier that I posted the link to? I'd like to find a cover wider than the one I have.

Thanks David
