Making Rib Cover...

We are attempting to make a rib cover today! But can't remember how to finish it off around the cone ends and transom?

If anyone is walking past their rib today/tomorrow please can you post a couple of pics and I'll let you know how I get on!

Thanks

Thanks dude, AJ also sent me a couple of pics too. His cover is done the same as yours.

We tilted the engine up and the four stroke merc 75 looked way too high to include it in the cover

We measured up the 545 rib as needing 6.4m x 3m of fabric so we managed to get a full length double seam done before we got rained off with thunder too.

Not Bad for a first attempt
Reckon you could do with a few more fasteners/tie downs before useing it on the Motorway though Al..
.not the sort of thing you want stuck to yer windscreen on the M4!

Would you believe I bought 15m of fabric to be on the safe side for a 545 and only just have enough

A long way to go yet...
