I had a cover made locally. These are made to order, and can be as you require - i.e. covering the engine, or a separate engine cover etc.

The cover is open at the back to allow for drying after recovery, and can be kept on whist towing to keep those pesky flies etc off of the console.

It is secured to the A Frame with adjustable straps, and hed on to the trailer by bungees- though you can use tie down ropes if you prefer.

If you want to know any more let me know by pm or email

Or you could go the cheap route and just by a tarpaulin. I think I paid about 40 for one to cover my 6.3 RIB. Go for the top grade and it should last about 4 seasons. Disadvantage is it takes longer to fit and you can't tow with it! A lot cheaper though!

I'm not sure about covering the engine though. There is an argument that you should leave that uncovered and free to let the air circulate. Otherwise, over winter it will never dry out!

Graeme, I'd be interested how much your cover cost and where from. Can you post details or PM me? It would be nice to have a 'proper' one if not too expensive!

Hi Graeme,

I wouldn't mind having the details of the covers as well.

Cheers.

Just been quoted 390 for a cover to go on my 4.2 Zodiac and I can get a lot of fuel for that...think I'll stick to the tarp! Thanks though for the info.

Yes, the Tarp is cheaper - and a Rag and Stick machine would save you a fortune in fuel costs
