is small enough that I can keep her in a garage for the winter. A far better option than tarp or shrink wrap... if, that is, your boat isn't big.
I tried one of these fancy synthetic cover materials last year..... a silverey polyester-based weave, absolute garbage and it lasted only a couple of months before the sun, rain and wind
tore it to shreds. We're going to try a custom cover made from vinyl/poly fabric
from an old billboard next; it seems much more durable.
So far I haven't seen any tarps or shrinkwraps blow off the boats in the yards around here yet this season.... but we haven't had a good winter storm yet. Give 'er 40 knots of wind and a metre of snow, and we'll see which covers survive....
