the first yr we had our boat it was shrink wrapped by the prev. owner. even with vents the boat was soaked all the time. every week i had to open the door for a day at least to alev. the prob. last winter i put on h/d silver poly tarps overlapped at the mast by 6'. had no prob what so ever with condensation at all. the reason was because i did not seal the overlap, and air could get under the tarp along the hull and pulpit. the only water that came in was around the mast and the stays. there really is no good way of sealing those areas unless you duck tape the hell out of those areas and then you have clean off the residue in the spring.
