I have Super- Shutes fitted to my World and have no problems with them. If fitted well they are water proof and maintenance free. But do ensure they are clean to avoid any leaks.

Given all the other problems you mention in fitting something you feel is more robust I would go for the ones that fit. Just ensure they are closed when you launch from the trolley to avoid any chance of ripping one off.

As Bob says they are esential for a World. The transom flaps are very useful if the boat is full of water but can be generally taped up otherwise. Also if you want to keep the boat even dryer consider a slot gasket (which also reduces noise).

If you want a contact to make a cover for the spinnaker chute at the front then PM me.
