Dinghy Cover

One of this winters project is a nice custom fitted cover for my hypalon dinghy. There is a ton of different marine grade fabrics on the market. Perhaps somebody has had a good experience with one.

I am looking for breathablity, UV resistant, weather proof and above all a product that will last four or five years and still look good.

Sailrite suggest Surlast others suggest Weather Max.

I am hoping somebody out there might be able to give me some good advice.

Re: Dinghy Cover

Well, haven't had mine that long, and expect it won't pass on your breathability requirement, but I got mine from, and have been pleased so far.
Rather than grommets, it had web loops every 20 inches or so. Good price.
