Winter cover

Well it's time to put the boat on the hard for the winter. I've never used a cover in the past, but I would like to cover at least the cockpit this winter. I would be interested in hearing what others use for frames and covers.

Assuming your mast is up, get a tarp large enough to cover the cockpit. Support the boom and remove the topping lift. position the tarp ascross the boom, tieing it to the backstay and forward to the mast, and then to the toerails. Make it tight. Heavy snow should slide off. Pad anything sharp on the boom.
