I have a trimanran in Maine...Just bought the boat...

For the winter, does one remove the netting for any possible heavy build up of snow? Even though the netting is a rather open weave, does enough snow collect to weigh down or stretch the net, or not a big deal? I live always lived in a warm weather area, though the boat is presently in a cold weather area, so really don't know the best way to do this. Thx in advance.

A pic would help, but removing the net's probably the best answer.
You wouldn't have to wonder if it's putting excessive loads on the boat or netting.
Better safe than sorry.

FS, hmm. My tri is also in Maine and this winter is going to be BAD, the ice is the problem, it can destroy cores. I owned Hughes #1 and tried to buy FS when you stepped in. Buy lot's of insurance. Stephen 775 827 2786 PST
