Ducksback (ebay) covers

Just planning to order a replacement for my 4 year old ebay (Ducksback) blue cover but cannot seem to find them on ebay and their website is not showing the covers.
In addition phone seems dead and email bounced back undelivered.
So assume business is no longer trading
Does anyone know if that is the case (I have seen recent comments about them orders when doing a search)
Is there an alternative supplier
many thanks

They are now sold by the Random Co.
Should be able to find them at www.ducksback.co.uk.

I ordered a size 6 22'-24' fro my 5.3 and it's too short - won't gather round the A-frame. They were prepared to take it back IF it was folded exactly as it was originally! That's proved beyond my abilities.

If anyone one want a brand spanking new size 6 drop me a pm.

I also have the e-mail address of their sales chap - pm me if you want it.

I purchased one that was too small off them and they took it back ok, so long as it was folded in the net sack that it was supplied in they were fine about it, refunded me straight away with paypal

I bought one about a year ago and am now looking for a bigger one.

As the OP observed, they don't seem to be on eBay at the moment, both their websites (ducksback.co.uk & coversandbags.co.uk) mention boat covers in their front page splashes, but don't have any mention of them in the product section...

Also emailed and not had a reply. Maybe they get them in batches and take them off the website when not available??

I was really happy with my first cover bought in 2007 and lasted until the end of winter 2011. This time around it's lost it's waterproofness much quicker and I've just jet washed a load of green alge off ready for a treatment of fabosil. Anyone else found this?

I was looking for another one and could not find them on e-bay. Sent a mail direct and received a reply saying they were having supply issues and were not sure when they would have any, if at all!!

Just checked the link you proivded and they are not listed?
