The damage that people cause with Shrink Wrap : Rot, Mildew, Paint lifting,and more. Better off with a canvas Trap or cover. The key as you know is venting and with plastic it's Hard to do right! Canvas is a lot more forgiving...Dale
I have been bugging Fairclough for nearly four years to build me a custom canvas cover that goes only to the toe rail. They won't do it.
NOTHING touches my paint not even canvas... For now shrink wrap is the best for our boat. I have never, ever had rot, moisture or mildew issues but the key is to install it correctly.. I have a gap of about 1.5" all around my toe rail, purposely left open, and the entire stern is left open with my vestibule design. Boat stays dry, no snow and no mildew....
