Tailor made cover for Zodiac rib - North West/ Wales

Hi All

The current zodiac cover on my Pro Open 550 is getting a bit and I'm looking for a replacement. Whilst the Zodiac one has lasted well (7 years) its not ideal as it sits on top of the tubes so I presume is more of a mooring cover. The wind gets underneath it meaning it flaps around and although it stays fairly dry, it doesn't stay that clean.

Any recommendations for tailor made covers in the North West/ North Wales?

Doing a search Quayside leisure get good reviews but just wondering if there is anyone closer?

Easy enough to take the existing cover there but I really want one that will wrap the tubes too so someone probably need to have the RIB with them too...

Thanks.

Stuart

Hi. I've just had a cover made by Brooke's for my Zodiac 550 pro open . The fit is spot on. I dropped the boat off at 8:30 and collected about 3pm . Great service!

Brookes are very good. Mine is 8 years old on a 6m Humber and no issues.

Thanks for all the messages and sorry for my slow response.

It sounds like Brookes is the way to go but will also speak to DEL in Bootle.

Gasman- you have a PM. Couple of questions if you don't mind RE you Pro Open and cover etc.

thanks

Stuart

Do you have any photos with the cover on because Ive got a Pro550 open with a suzuki 90hp on it and have been thinking of getting a sexy new cover.
Brian.

I would second Red Fox, although I am local I was given their name/contact by Chas Newens, Putney London as the place to get a new cover for my 550 when it finally wears out.

Ian - many thanks for the photos. Look great.

Brian - just sent you a PM too regarding this cover. Just wondering if we can come up with a way to get 2 covers made by only taking one boat there.... assuming are pro opens are identical.

Cheers
