Winterizing?
I got a new bravo, -sadly- put it down for the winter. It will be sotred in my garage for the winter... any suggestion other than real good clean for the winter?

I am looking for some instruments to measure wind speed for my Bravo. Must be water proof and small enought to mount on the a frame.
Thanks

I washed the gull poo off my sail and let it dry real well; and scrubbed up the boat. I'm going to put a tarp over it for the winter.

Also painted my bob to keep the d@#& gulls off it next summer - meet "Fierce Bob"

I used two tarps (for "layers") last winter and it worked fine. I would clear off the snow after a storm. Then a quick power wash in the spring and I was good to go....

Thanks. I am on the right track. :mrgreen:

Also on another subject I modify a small 4x8 utility trailer to carry my bravo around it works really good as I am able to carry the sail with the mast already assembly laying on the trailer front stand. I will post pictures later.
