Lasts a season fine. I accept doesn't look beautiful but avoids the seagull poo on the boat and (I think) deters thieves because it makes the rib look less attractive on the swinging mooring
hi guys, Eddy, your idea has its merits. The last point is a very valid one, it might even deter seagulls if it is flapping about, rather than a nice tight fitting cover which is easier to come to rest on!
It really has been disheartening this past two months to arrive with the intention of a nice day out on the water only to have to spend the first hour or more scrubbing and scraping sh1te off the boat before setting off. Although it is generally amusing for others in the harbour area it aint my idea of fun, or my partners!
