Recycle that portable greenhouse.

Prior to polishing the boat( please see above) I needed to put the winter cover on my Beneteau 311. The problem I have always had with covering the boat, if you are doing it on the cheap like me, is the question of the width of the cockpit. You can put the tarp over the boom,but then the rain accumulates in the sag of the tarp.
I think I have found the solution. One of the more useless things I have purchased for the yard has been a portable green house. The cover tears as you look at it, but they do come with a very serviceable frame. I dug mine out of the weeds and with a few alterations I erected it in the cockpit of the boat. It provides an excellent support to the cover and with a fairly steep incline to the roof should stop the snow from accumulating.

Cool. I don't cover mine, I shovel. But my dory cover in the driveway is bowed with flexible pvc pipe.
