Re: Winter Storage Covers

The issue with the cloth covers in the North East USA, is that snow can accumulate on them, and lead to other issues. Last year in the North East it would not have been a problem, however this year it would have been.

I reluctantly shelled out the $1250 (this year) to marina, to have it done. Next year, if I can't convince the wife to spend the winter in Florida, I will probably use the silver tarp method described above.

If my boat were anyware south of where more than 6" of snow can fall, I would invest in a Fairclough cover.
