I use the ducks back covers. They are great value, and tend to last about three years of continuous use

Can you confirm this the cover and supplier you mention in your post :?: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Up-to-3-8-m-1 ... SwnHZYePQY to help those interested in purchasing one ;-)

Looks ideal and if you get 3yrs continuous use as Chris says it's just the ticket for the money :thumbsup
:cheers

Hi Paul,

Yes I think that's the one but I went direct to their site as Chris said - looks like the same price anyway.
As long as you go to Boat Covers then select 'Inflatable Boat (dinghy) Cover' NOT 'Cover for Rib / Sports boats'
Then select the 'Up to 3.8m' one then it's the right one. I got free delivery (was quick) but I spent a bit more as I ordered 2 outboard covers too.
Fits as though it was designed specifically for the 360.

Full description on the ducks back site:

Up to 3.8m (12’5″) The overall length of the cover is 4.43m and the width at the widest point is 2.24 m.

Pic. Here I've just thrown it on, not even done up the straps, fits nicely over the outboard and tubes at the front and back.
