Re: Winter under a tarp

Been there done that mostly with tarps and no issues BUT on a larger Sailboat it becomes very hard to keep a tarp from damaging the topside finish in a windy area



My J24 pretty easy



My Cal 29 not so much



The white shrinkwarp allows huge amounts of light to work on the boat VS the tarp which turns it into a black hole as there objective is to BLOCK light



And there was no frreaking way after all that work i was gonna mar the topsides

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
