RIB cover

Now the SR4 is finished its going on a mooring. I need a cover for it to help protect the tubes and console.
The "blue ebay RIB covers" look ok but strap under the boat which is no good.
Any ideas?

Its where they tie on is the problem. Am tempted to get on with a drawstring and pull it tight and tie it on the forward D ring and rings at the stern.

I have one of the blue ones for a 7m rib, and can put it on, straps and all whilst on the water, bit fidly, but feeding it on from the bow to stern, with the straps clipped in place can work, then just tighten when all in place.

Guess it could be a bit more fiddly on a smaller rib, but if it's on a mooring, I guess you have a tender to get you out there?

There is another supplier on ebay, that does not advertise under ribs.

They have an elasticated hem, and straps. Just phone before you buy one if you go this route, they had a batch of lower duty material, that was not good enough imo.

I'll either be in my tender or just swim out.
It shouldn't be too hard working the straps under the hull.
Would rather use a cover that someone else has just so I know its a decent one.

Which would you recommend?

Thanks

RIB Cover

Hi Chewy, I was considering making my own from a wagon trailer tarpaulin.
I was told the company Tees Tarpaulins could supply the tarp, I gave them a call and thwy said approx 120 for one the size I needed.
How much are the ones you have been looking at?

the one you ordered is "Beam size: Max. 90" (228cm) "
Beam of an SR4 is 1.8m I think, so might well be OK.
