just one wee point.....both my brother & I have the heavy weight "PVC" ?? type covers, these are great winter covers but both of us have found them very hard to fold up/store small ( arkward ) , if you go away for a short "break" with rib for say a w/e or longer.. just a point, it depends on the use for the cover. ( ps, thats the reason we went for console covers, for use during short breaks/summer/ etc..... )

All over covers, my brothers came with his rib from Humber but mine was made in N Ireland but dont know where, it was an after product via a boat dealer ( about 7 years ago ) & is showing a good few signs of age......!!!!!!!

If I was to get another all over cover, it would be the "lighter cloth type material" as its a lot easier to fold up/store etc also it you tow the rib with the heavy "pvc" cover on the rib it does cause scuff marks on whatever it rubs on. NOT trying to put u off the pvc, just telling what we have found by use,

Yes to all that. The all over cover for the Redbay covers the engines too and I can just about carry it around - it's a pig of a thing, cozy fit though

These work well:

Loads of folk on here have them. Mine has lasted about three years, developed some holes now through rubbing on parts in the wind etc, but I reckon one more cover and then use the old one to re inforce parts will do the job nicely

Try Marshall Marine Textiles in Cobh, I have used him for plenty of canvas work and is very good, he also travels to Dublin a fair bit and would measure the boat in person.
On the budget side of things I got Starspring marine in Schull to do my console covers am happy with the results so far.
cheers

Rib Cover

I have just purchased a new cover for my 5.5m Ribeye from Sea-Swan. Got the lead from another Ribnet follower. Excellent service and good price.
