Re: What is the best way to Tarp a sailboat for winter
It makes me cringe when someone near me on dry dock does their own tarp. 9 times out of 10 there will be more damage to their own boats and adjacent boats then it is worth, if you don't know what you are doing. Most of those tarps, the grommets are useless and will rip out, and the string I have seen used. Any movement of the tarp can cause wear and tear.
9 out of 10? Is that a scientific study?
What kind of specialized knowledge do you need to tarp your boat? Is there a degree, trade school, certification?
Mine looked the same in spring as it did in fall, and I'm certainly no boat-tarp expert.
