Where to get a cover made??

Can anyone reccomend anyone in North Wales / the NW to make an overall cover (inc A frame) for a 6.2m rib? The one I've got is from Sherlock Foams in Stockport but no good 'cos it doesn't cover engine so rain comes in!! ??
Any thoughts on materials or design?

Cheers

Nick

Try Ronnie in Bootle. I use him for the tonneau covers for my fishing boats. All welded with no stitch holes.
Mention me, Steve from Endeavour Boats

I have an Avon 620 and got a cover 'off the peg' from Bembridge outboards:

It has two zips to get past the A-frame and covers the engine. It was not expensive. Pretty nice, I'd say.

You could do a lot worse than talk to Paul Tilley

www.tidel.biz

as I note that he lists boat covers on his website

I can recommend Bembridge Outboards - they make fantastic covers.

North Wales - try Mouse Sails,

Try John at JD Tarpaulins, he can make one from welded PVC for not alot of money. 07774788290, tell him Scott gave you his number. He is based in Ashton U Lyne, not far from Stockport.
