I store my Getaway outdoors in a dry dock, exposing it to a lot of summer sun. I need to cover it, but find the use of a tarp awkward - wind blown, etc. Any ideas for a convenient and durable cover for the tramps, etc?

Appreciate you ideas.

Matt

If you keep your eye's open you can pick up one of those portable single car garage kits made with an aluminum frame with a fabric covering for very economical prices, lasts for many years and can be moved easily.

I bought a 20 X 10 poly tarp from a local auto parts place. Cut a slot for the mast. Lots of bungy cords. Works great. Just want to keep the UV and bird poop off the tramps. My boat sits on a ramp at the cottage

Do you have a Camping world around you? They have a reflective tarp thatis much thicker than your standard blue poly tarp. I know tarps can be a pain, but if you take a little time and get everything you need to attach it it will work well. We used one on our travel trailer and it lasted over 4 years for 50.00$ intead of a cover for 500.00$
