Looks good to me and a great price. I only cover mine when not in use, I personally wouldn't tow a rib with the cover on, but thats just me.

Why if it's a good fit I towed mine to Oban and back no problem .. Not as if a proper fitted one is going to blow of is it.. All that crap off the roads if it's raining etc the boats a dam site more expensive than a cover

Yeh and I was behind you all the way to Oban and I jest not.... your cover was blowing about like mad thats why I kept a good distance back from you.

As sure as eggs are eggs yours is going to come off one day mate.

Most proper boat cover makers always stress that they are not to be towed with cover on.
