In the process of ordering an on water light weight cover similar to attached image, looking at best ideas if anyone has images of theirs. This one will be light weight material, generally used in summer where boats left on water instead of lifting. So ease of use and protecting tubes/rain cover.

Think we have a few of the cover made for our old cougar. Was not lightweight tho. Will be looking for something similar soon too so interested to see how you go.

One of the guys here made a consul cover and asked for him to price up something and also will get a couple of quotes, but expecting something like the image, just keen to see other ideas, the heavy cover is a bitch to fit on the water, just need a sun and rain sheet

I made one for our sailing club rib which is kept afloat. It tied to the lifelines like your example but I put a flap of material which hangs over the tubes and has some weights sewn in the hem to help keep it in place. This helps to keep the weather out and the UV off.
For lightweight and UV resistance Weathermax 80 is great cloth. Not the cheapest but it's breathable too.

We had something very similar made for the PAC when on its mooring. It's not light, but easily left in the tender.... It clips to the strong points for the grab lines with large easy release stainless carabiners.... Rear velcros around the a frame and front to the stanchion post.... Saves the tubes from the worst of the seagull decoration, but they still play havoc with the bow...
