Just spoke to the seller and swapped it for a RIB cover.
Even though my RIB is 4m he recommended the 3m cover as my console isn't real high.

Mine's got the draw string on it and when it lived on a drying berth I had bungie cords with a small weight in the middle. Put them over the bow and pull them along the hull to the back and clip on to the draw string each side, and then another one near the front. Worked well. The weight was only to make the cord sink and once it dried out the weight of the boat in the mood kept the cord in place.
I think you can get rubbing strake that has a lip to hook things onto.

Similar to mentioned above, there is a boat on a river mooring on the Hamble -maybe a Fairey or of that style - which uses hanging bags (maybe sand/lead shot?) in place of an underboat strap. It seems to work as the cover is taught and with no pooling.

That said I would have thought a SR4 would require no more than 4 under boat straps, which would be feasible to apply from a tender?

A pic-that'd be good thanks. Need to get one for the 6m rib. Lives in the garage usually but be nice to be able to cover it on trips away. The 5.5 has a humber cover that we had supplied with it but it is soooo heavy and takes up so much room when not in use. Any issues with consol or A frame?

Went straight over the console and fits fine. I don't have an A frame so no problems there.
To be honest it looks like it has been custom made for my boat, couldn't believe my luck.
