Experience of Seaswan rib covers anyone?

I'm just looking to replace my winter cover and have had a promising response from Seaswan.co.uk. Just trying to see if anyone has any first hand experience of their product before I take the plunge.

Had one on previously owned zodiac pro 420 was very good, much better than the one I have on current rib.

I ended up ordering from Seaswan and the cover arrived yesterday. I'm very impressed with the fit and quality of it and also some of the features.

There is a reinforcing patch where it sits over the console, a hook at the rear to tie it up to the a-frame and some good strips of velcro to fit it around the a-frame. All in all it is far superior to the 'ebay blue' cover I previously had albeit significantly more expensive.

Check what they supply over bespoke measurements.

Ducksback are good for a general lightweight cover. If you want something to fit exactly the measurements are key.
