The only problem I have found so far is with the cold night temperatures the condensation builds up on the inside. Might be an idea to add a couple of light wieght vents to the top or things might start going mouldy underneath.

Cheers Pete. I have gone for the size 7. Condensation will be burnt off very quickly. Was thinking of using the new cover over the old one, as the old one has a reinforced panel over the grabrail/screen.

All the Best to you and Viv

Brian
I was thinking of using some pipe insulation foam to fit over the screen should be easy to push on and off

Thats exactlty what I've done.

Split down the middle with 'V's cut out to go around the corners.
Just pushes on and off as required.

Does anyone know of a cover that will completely cover a rib, including 'A' frame and engine?

Do you mean cover the whole A-Frame? I'm not sure if i've ever seen one like that. The one that came from XS with our rib covers the engine, but has velcro bits to let the a-frame "pop" out of the top of the cover.

Those screens look perfect for slicing your face up when you headbutt it during a "moment"

Finally got round to ordering a new cover from eBay. The old one disintigrated (actually not that old only 6 mths). Went for the 21 - 22ft cover which covers both my Humber 5.5mtr rib and engine in one go. Pity Nasher doesn't live close, could do with employing his sewing skills.

When did you order it?

I phoned the company 3 weeks ago and they said they'd stopped selling them temporarily as they ahd found a defect in the material. If they're selling them again (i.e. since then) I'll get my order in.
