As promised, and with apologies for sort of hijacking the thread a bit, a picture of my 1973 Flatacraft Force 4, I'll post more on the gallery rather than totally hijack the thread :

I go fishing lots and never had a problem with hooks going in. Hyperlon is very durable and will last for years. You'd have to do something pretty stupid to damage it, UV is your biggest enemy but as already mentioned a good cover or inside storage sorts this problem out. My tubes are over 10 years old and still bright red.

There are covers made to go under the tubes that use elastic around the bow area and straps around the rear. If you have tear drop fendering you can also get plastic hooks that are used to fix your cover in place.

Did you get Bembridge OB to alter it at all?

Nick, yep came from Bembridge and is holding up very well despite a year in the sun, rain and snow. Its a we bit tight for a 22 foot boat (cover is 21')and needs something clever doing for the a frame but that can wait uptil the end of the eyar and the baot is out of the water.

It came off at one point and ended up at the bottom of Haslar Creek but a quick wash down and its back to normal. The material is quite heavy and cloth type rather than plastic but keep the UV off my tubes which counts. The light grey colour does show some marks were the edge goes over the rubbing strake and this has rubbed against the pontoon as it moves about in tide.

Great bit of kit

Pete
