Wouldn't work for the orange spherical ones I'm going to, however.

Why you going to those things ? Isn't the problem of stowing the buggers more trouble than they are worth ?

Generally speaking I wouldn't be bothered with the covers , seem like just another way to piss away your hard earned dosh on completely useless stuff.

Then again some people do polish their hulls, have dinky little throw cushions with anchor motifs, wear colour coded docksiders and call their wife the admiral.

Our attitude is that should a pirate spot us they will take one look and decide the other blokes boat has got to be a better prize than our scruffy old pos. Also we are Australians. Nuff said.

Then again....how about fender covers made from dead possums ?
