If you own a current model Honda outboard you will need to purchase a branded cover from your local Honda dealership (Click here) to find one near you). However, there are exceptions so please read the following carefully before ordering:-
A brief note on my experience with Geoff and Leanne Felgate’s company, Outboard Covers & Accessories (a.k.a. Outboard Covers Australia) as per www.outboardcovers.com.au.
The photos show my cover in place, as well as off the engine, after three years of use. The cover has faded a bit (sun, sand and salt tend to do that!) but look at the engine; it looks about a week old doesn’t it? Each six months or so I took the cover off to see if anything ‘untoward’ was happening (as several people had warned) but nothing ever happened under there, save for my engine being protected.
With manufacturing disappearing apace (sadly) in Australia, it is comforting to find a quality manufacturer still here and flourishing! The materials, sewing and fit are the best I have seen. Don’t be put off by the initial ‘battle’ to get the cover on: they are tight fits, and they need to be. Mine has never come adrift and this boat get towed at 110kph on the Hume Highway quite often.
I wholeheartedly recommend Outboard Covers Australia. Although their website does the job, I still prefer to order via phone and I am glad to say Geoff has answered the phone every time I have called. What more do you want? I have sold the Quintrex and now own a Sirocco RIB with a Honda F20; neat, fast and fun and now with a new cover for my new engine.

People also ask what is wrong with using vinyl or a padded vinyl won’t that stop the noise more and offer more protection?
Yes it MAY but as it is not breathable it will cause moisture to build up under both the cowl and cover. This will corrode the motor and damage the paint and decals.
Most people are not aware that a replacement cowl is extremely expensive and if new decals are required these are usually extra and can cost as much as one of our Splash covers.
This is typically what would happen if you made your outboard cover out of a material that does not have breathability such as vinyl or even neoprene which is used on wet suits. They do not have what Polysoft® has!
