Re: My Fairclough Cover Failed
I guess in coastal RI, it's somewhat uncommon for snow load to remain long enough for the next big dump. Most often, it will even rain in between, let alone will the sun come out and start melting it off.
But, it's got me thinking. This winter has been a bitch and I haven't seen my cover in going on 2 months.
Another thought. I've yet to install my Fairclough without the mast in place, which is firm attached to the ridge. The one year on rotation, since I bought her and where I dropped the mast, she went inside for a paint job. I wonder if securing the ridge to the mast adds marginal stability. Otherwise, I can see how the entire structure could theoretically rock back and forth.
