Re: Shrink Wrap

The problem with most 20 year canvas covers - at least here in the Northeast, and Nova Scotia, is that snow can build up on top of the cover (sleet freezes to the cover) and increase the weight on the cover, and therefore increases strain on the stanchions.

The nice thing about the way that your boat is covered, Chuckles, is that the cover does not go over the stanchions, but rather attaches at the base.
