Winter storage questions
I’m planning to put my “new” FS away for the winter in a couple of weeks. I am looking for affordable indoor storage, but I may have to park her besides the garage. I have a cover that drapes over the mast as it sits on the trailer. In fact there is a bottom cover as well.
My question it this, should I pull the mast off and store it in the garage? I have enough room for it, but not for the whole boat. I figure that snow will likely build up on the canvas, no matter how tightly I stretch it.
For those of you that have to store outside in the winter, how do you prep and protect the boat?
