El nino winter coming, Adam... maybe we don't have to worry about snow so much.. last year was exceptional (if you are a skier! )

We have used the tarp in the past but it can be difficult to set up so that there's no chafe on the cabintop/coamings or to the tarp itself when the wind gets up. This year we're going without - also makes it easier to pop out for a quick jaunt when the weather opens up a bit.

Obviously if you're still fighting leaky ports and chainplates you need to do whatever you can to minimize the water intrusion...
