Your cover does not protect the hull so 2,500 miles or not it won't protect your hull and that is the most exposed part of your boat while towing pal.

All that is doing while towing is keeping the flies of your tubes, also under the hull is as exposed just like the rest of us who don't tow with a cover on

And from the start all I said was...

I personally would not tow my rib with a cover on but that just me.

"Thats because I would never forgive myself if it ever came off and wiped a family out while driving on the motorway or road.

But I have not criticised anyone for doing so

And yes it was blowing about like mad even the wife said to me keep well back, it is more noticeable from someone driving behind you.

Don't forget when you was driving about with the axle on you trailer set to far back for some reasons unknown putting a dangerous amount of nose weight on your tow ball and you thought that because it was a Ribquest they are a lot heavier than anyone elses boat.

But there again your a smart arse as well

I had a rubbery canvas one made for my Zodiac GT 3.8, no consol.
You could tuck under it at pop out at the tiller spot on the tube when under way at sea , like a cork in a bottle.
It bungee corded to the "D" clips on the outer tube.With an off shore jacket or wet suit, your snug as a bug in a rug.
