Boat covers

Do you cover your boat in winter? We recently bought a sailboat (Chesapeake area) and right now it only has a wheel cover & sail cover. This winter we’ve had several snowfalls -- and I’m wondering what damage can occur to a boat that isn’t covered. We will definitely get a cover for next winter.

What’s a good cover to get, and where is a good place to get it? Also, wouldn’t there be a lot of damage from the UV rays in summer? How do you protect the boat from the UV rays? This is our first boat, so we have a lot to learn.
Thanks, GB
