Thanks. Very timely - I've just lost a cover to the strong winds that we had up here yesterday!

they are strapped above AND below the hull, i take the A frame out and it covers to the middle of the Leg, with the frame in, it would wrap around the base, the bottom is elasticated,,
had high wind last night and its still there and all is good

Not bad - 19ft and 44 - I wonder where the justification is in charging 1200 for a cover for a boat less than 2x the size???

I've just ordered a size 7 one for my RIB and am waiting for it to arrive.

I emailed the company asking if they could put some slots in it for my A-frame, and they sent me the attached image showing how the covers are cut away at the rear for A-Frames.

Glad the quality is good.

Just ordered a 17-19' one as well.

I bet they're wondering where all the business is coming from

Do you think the 17 -19' will cover the large centre consul on my 5.5 m boat or should i go for a bigger size ?
