Winter is in full force. As I write it is -26 degrees centigrade outside! Still, it will pass as always, and in about 4 months it should be boat prep time for spring sailing.
I remain very pleased with the fitted cover from North Sails. Designed to be a perfect fit for my Shark 24, it is so easy to put on. I did it tugging around the boat without a second person assisting, and had it snugged down in very little time. It is vastly more simple and convenient than struggling with a tarp and numerous pieces of rope. With a plastic tarp, there is always the possibility of wear and tear, flapping and blowing off. This is particularly so, as it ages and weakens. This fitted cover is as good and as strong as the day I bought it years ago.
