After a fair amount of discussion, we've decided we're going to have a new cratch cover made. Now we need to decide who to have it made by, what to have it made of, and how we want it to look.
The last question is the easiest to answer. We quite like the cratch cover we have now but it has plastic "windows" in the sides and we want to be able to cover those. So we want roll down covers for the window panels.
What to have it made of is a little more difficult. We really like the look of canvas covers but I'm guessing they wouldn't be totally waterproof. It seems they can be treated with some sort of waterproofing but I wonder how well that works.
The plastic/PVC, or whatever it is, cover that we have now is good from the point of view of waterproofing but we notice that condensation is a problem on the under side of the cover. We are forever getting wet backs as we climb in or out of the cratch area.
Opinions on the different materials would be great!
I've emailed a couple of suppliers to see what sort of price we'd be looking at. We're hoping it can be done while we're at Aston Marina over Winter.
