Where did you get your console cover from?

this fitted my destroyer 5.5 a treat - although it was dark
Do you reckon this cover would fit a 5.8m x 2.5m RIB, or would we need the next larger size?

Just ordered one

I have ordered the size 5 for Time Bandit, the guy I spoke to told me to measure from under the rubbing strake up and over the very top of the console / screen then over to the undeside of the other strake.

The do exactly the same front to back.

I gave him the measurements and he told me the size 5 would be ideal.

67.00 - Bargain!

Ordered one & it arrived today - looks very good for the money - just hoping it is big enough to go over the cabib bit on the boat. Have to wait to see if it fits till I drag the boat aout again in a month or so - really just plan to use it over the winter when its out.

Has anyone towed any distance with one of these covers?

I'm planning on towing down to Dartmouth from the Pompey area with it on, and am wondering how it will stand up.

I have one and I wouldn't have thought it would be a problem, the material is strong enough, it just needs to be well secured. I bought a cover one size too big and it covers my boat and engine. All I have had to do is fit a single eyelet in the center of the cover in between the outboard and the rear seat, this allows water drainage straight into the sump where the trunk releases the water onto the road.

Cool-might leave mine on at the weekend then. Anything to improve the fuel consumption when towing!

I would go a size larger as your boat is both longer and wider than mine. my cover is at the limit of how far you can stretch it.

However, if you don't have an A-frame you would get away this size as a lot of the length cover is used up going round the A-frame and back. Also it does depend on consoles and seats as they take up material to cover. Mine has a console and 4 jockey seats.

If you have an A-frame and similar seating layout, a size larger is the way to go I think
