Covers?

Contemplating treating my Ribeye 600 to a nice new cover, eyes watered after speaking to Ribeye (600+vat) - anyone know of a good place I can send my current one to so they can pattern and make me a new one for sensible money?

I took BP down to quayside & leisure in Cannock last week to be measured up. Highly regarded on the Forum. I'm having a full boat cover & a separate console/Ullmans cover for not a million miles away from what you're quoting. That seems to be the going rate for anything of any quality. It took them 4 hours to pattern & template it, so you can see why they cost so.


.....sh1t happens.......

That seems steep to me tbh... We have a lady make up bespoke covers for us.... Top quality materials and she usually makes a couple of visits to fit / measure etc.... Last week she made us this full mooring cover to our spec (it's an 8.5m x 3m wide rib with a very tall console).... All in just over 400 inc.

If you have one to work from already and a LOT less material.... 600 seems steep....

All IMO of course
