Re: Winterizing a Trailer Sailer, and Books to share


It's a good idea to let some fresh air get inside the tarp, even if you've got a plastic boat, to discourage moss and mildew.

Put a marble or pebble inside that "fist" of tarp to make a more secure tie point.

I take the cushions out and sails and anything else that that will mold, I take the outboard indoors, I put a tarp over it and tie it down all the way round,
I ball the tarp up in a fist and choke it with a short piece of rope to make a tie point where there isn't one..... tarp is rectangle, boat is kind of a triangle.
Not perfect, but that's what I've done so far.
