Next year when you shrink, have them do it in clear. This creates a greenhouse affect. Be sure to add at least a half dozen vents. This will provide warm fresh air all day long. On some bright sunny days you can sit out on deck in your shorts. This also gives good visibility, brightening your environment. With this setup you can open a couple of hatches during the day, refreshing you interior and allowing any dampness to rise above the deck. This was going to be my approach here in Warwick Cove but I just couldn't cough up the $700+ for a 6 month plastic bag. My miser gene said heck no! So I just heat my 35 with two little WM electric heaters, keeping it at 60 when I'm away and 68 when I'm home. Always dry, always comfortable, electric at approx. $500 a season. BTW, I have two open Dorade vents all the time.
