How do you wrap yours..?

Just out of interest....how do you cover your RIB?

I use a 1940's US army tent found in the back of an old container

I have also blagged a 1969 Forty plus as a reserve

I had a custom made cover as my RIB is an odd shape.

Best RIB cover is a decent garage.

We have been turfed out of our normal base whilst they build some houses so we are temporarily "sleeping with the enemy" at a caravan storage place.

It has become a great source of entertainment watching some of the caravaners park up so it's not been that bad!

We set up a ridge line rope under the Monarflex cover (excellent bit of kit!) from the centre of the A frame over the bow and down to the trailer. We've recently bought a cheap cheerful mini cover to go over the engine to tuck it in that little bit warmer now!!

A recent new sleeping partner is the huge Russian ZIL truck, hopefully between the ZIL and the boat we liven up the caravan park a bit!
