What happened to the guy on here that sold vented motor covers? I PM him several times and never heard back. Let me know how to get a hold of him if anyone can. I bought one from him a couple years ago and really liked it.

I have one from Russell Marine on a HPDI and one fromTuffskin for a merc 115. I like the looks of the russell marine one better.

I'd guess no....I know my motor needs air to run. It seems like it would restrict air flow to the intake at high Rpms. The vented cover accommodates this. It isn't for cooling, obviously. But....yours might be different.

I say no, but I've seen it done several times. I would not do it personally or would I purchase one intending on using it like that.

*600lb tensile strength
*Will NOT hide your trim switch
*no buckles or nylon straps.
*fits like a second skin
*available for just about every engine made.

The movement of the cover will scratch the cowling as well; finally just took my cover off.
