Just the topic!

Just about to order one!!!!. We have a 5.5m with A frame, so all you experts what size do i need. I did notice on the site they DO say they are not suitable for boats with A frames........so do you order a larger one to cope with it or what????
My fist year with a RIb, have learned the hard way for most things so i am doing the research first on this one. Any advise on what i need to do to winter the new boat and engine.
Cheers Phil

HI Phil I got a larger one for my 585 and got someone to make zips to allow me to fit around the frame. Others I know have bought really big so they could just put it over the frame and secure around the back, What ever is your preference. Hope this helps.

Looks like you mean "Ducksback"? I've been trying to contact them for the last few days, no reply to email (address taken from their site, therandomco@gmail.com) and the phone number I also found on their website (01384 635959) is unobtainable. Are they still in business? Any better contact details please (am just trying info@ducksback.co.uk )?
Thanks

Hi Smithy
I just bought an engine cover this week from them no problem. I used their Ebay site. Hope this helps.

Difficult to contact

Hi Smithyyy, i had the very same problem contacting them. Infact i thought like you they had gone pop, and if they did deal with people like that ....no wonder!.

Anyway, i did send an email to therandomco@gmail.com and yesterday i received a reply!! from a Julie Ore telling me to go direct to the website to order and that there is a devise on there to work out sizes etc. No explanation why we could not contact them on the telephone. Perhaps they are to busy dealing with all our enquiries!! i think ribnet should have its own supplier?.
Wish i could find a solar powerd small bilge pump for the rib when she is on a mooring.
Cheers Phil

Thanks - yes, the different email address worked (other address and phone number came off their site though).
I was trying to get clearer whether they allow for A frames - answer no, just stretch the back corners around the outside and over the back of the tubes. Could still be worth getting one and modifying it though, they're so cheap to start with

Got also reply this week from Julie and she refers to their website with a calcuator for the cover size .
Did that for the SR 5.4 and ended up with :

Rib and Speed Boat Cover 14-16ft (size 3)

Can anybody confirm that it fits on a 5.4 ?
Thanks in advance !
