Ah. I was sure I remembered some body mentioning 700 - 800 at the cost for a made to measure cover a while back. The point still stands: it depends on the age/value of your rib and what sort of budget you're on.

Done this for 6 years. No problems with electrics or mould......

Ball loop bungee, toggle bungee, tarp grabber, anchor guys are terms used and googled but can come to a conclusion what is best to use.... Any tips ? txs
Rather than try and make one from scratch why not try adapting something that alerady exists. Depending on the size you need google mobility scooter cover or golf cart cover.

Hi Huib

Would be good to see some pics if you get a chance. It might help others to see the result isn't too much of a compromise.

It's a size 4 Ducksback: 65 plus some postage. I got an engine cowl cover too for 8. I'm pretty sure I can get it to fit a bit nicer next time, there aren't any instructions and I think I've got the bow wrong.
