Re: My Fairclough Cover Failed

OK, different weather conditions, different defence measurements. The amount of snow is indeed a lot more than we have over here and cockpit draining in snowy conditions is indeed a serious issue, over here also. UV conditions can also play a role. The 'deck collapsing under snow weight' however I find some somewhat less convincing to me. A deck should be able to withstand the dynamic force of tons of water by collapsing waves, so the static force of (a lot of) snow should be no real problem. But than again, I don't live in such an area, so I cannot judge on that. I suppose these tent covers have been developed based on experience - which still leads to improvements so I read.
