Re: gearing up for sandy
May want to think about getting a nice canvas cover in two parts., or making one for next year for your new boat. Two years of shrink wrap will cover the cost and the canvas ( duckcloth) will last 10 years easily. Also allows the boat to breathe well in the time you have her covered so no mildew problems occur. Can put in on while on land or if you decide to stay in the water for a couple years to save the winter storage costs.
