Re: Shrink Wrap and mast removal
I built a frame out of PVC. 24" high ladder sections tie to the toe rail around the entire perimeter. Then I have PVC lengths with u-clips on then ends that bend over the stored mast and clip to the ladder sections. There's uplift now, that's why the ladders are tied down. I cover the whole thing with a tailored tarp. I bought a huge blue tarp, measured the boat at 4'-0 intervals and cut the tarp to fit on the back lawn. A couple of hours on mama's Singer and Voila! Boat cover. I secure it with bungies so it's pulled tight. It has taken 24" of snow without failure. Someday I'll use the cover as a template and make a real one out of Sunbrella.
