Ducksback Cover - Excellent

My new to me boat did not come with a cover so I spent £57 on a Ducksback one from ebay. I was not expecting much but when it arrived I am very very pleased with it. As advised I bought the smaller one based on the size of my rib after measuring and it fits perfect. It is sort of a stretchy material and breathable. It is quick to put on and off and fits my boat so that water will not pond.

In short if you have no cover try one of these. For the price why wouldn't you.

Time will tell how long it will last. If I get more than 2 seasons I will be happy enough. 3 would make it excellent value

Can I ask what length rib you have and which length cover you ordered?, reason being that I could not find one suitable when I measured up.

thanks

My boat is 4.5 m or 14.8 ish foot. I measured and bought the 12 - 14 foot one. I was originally going to buy the 14-16 foot one but glad I bought the smaller as it is an excellent fit. This was the one I bought

For £57 I recon 3 seasons is very good

You even get a handy little draw string bag which is good on any boat
