If you want a long life serious cover, contact Cunningham Covers in Maghera. They do custom covers (tailored, they'll require Sirs craft for a week). Not the cheapest, but are the Mutts Nutts

Hey there guys! Have you any ball park figure for the cost of a good cover? Did yu have to pay much for yours? Just wondering what's a respectable price for a 5.8?

Cunningham Covers

Hi,
Just to back up Willk, I have a 7.5m XS and got Cunningham Covers to make me a tailor-made cover for the whole boat (covers the tubes, protecting from UV). The cover is heavy duty and fits very well and even has vents. CC are very pleasant to deal with and given the quality of the cover, very reasonably priced IMHO.

Highly recommended!

Regards, Mike

Great stuff, I must check out those places.. The place in Bray woudnt be a million miles away either. I just picked up the boat 2 weeks ago, on the very day the snow started, there was a very light cover with it but it wasn't great at keeping the snow off so I had a tarp at home and threw that over the boat for the moment.. But I deffo need a good cover if this winter weather is a taste of things to come!!! Brrrrr!!!

While I am sure the recommendations from others are fine, I used the local tel directory and found a local guy who ran a small one man outfit making covers for farms, trucks etc. He did great job very personal service and paid cash in hand. just a thought.

Yep that's another good idea DJ .. And cash in hand is certainly king! 
