Thank you
I just bought one of these Taylor Made covers :

Taylor Made Dinghy Cover 8'5" to 9'4" Length 55" Max Beam*-*Taylor Made*70134 - Taylor Made Dinghy Covers - Taylor Made Inflatable Boats & Dinghies Covers - Boat Covers - Boatersland Marine

Seems to be well made. Straps go right around the dinghy so it's fairly secure.
