Please help! I have scoured he internet for hours but cannot find a B&G Focus suncover.

The model is the same as this one

Can anyone tell me where I can find one?

Why not make one? It's pretty easy. The simplest would be to sew shock cord around the outside of a square of material that is sized to fit the cover. It can get more complicated (i.e., fit better) but it can be done very simply.

Re: B&G sun cover required

As jimggo says, making one from Sunbrella or equivalent is pretty darn easy. I made one for an old B&G depthfinder display in less than an hour. You sew it inside out, flip it in/out, and voila! Mine fits nice and snug, doesn't need velcro, snaps or shock cord, and has stayed put even in 30-35 knot winds.

Thanks for your suggestions. Looks like I have no chance of finding the part, so I'll do as you say and be a bit more creative. Cheers for pointing me in the right direction.
