Author Topic:   Winter Cover for 03 Montauk

Has anyone with a new Montauk (02-present) found a good boat cover that works well for winter storage? I live in the North East so the cover would have to be able to handle some snow and also keep out the neighborhood squirels. I have been using a Mills mooring cover during the season to keep out the leaves and sun protection, but am concerned with the Mills cover openings around the bow rail and ability to handle the snow. Was wondering if there is some really good winter cover out there or if I should just use the Mills or perhaps a tarp? As always, any advice is greatly appreciated.

Beaner - Here in Idaho - I just use a "poly" tarp - vinyl impregnated fabric - waterproof and strong. The farmers around here use it for covering hay stacks, equipment covers and irrigation dams. Works real well - handles snow, ice and rain. I just use golf balls (rocks work too) for anchors in the poly tarp and tie nylon ropes to the trailer, winch stand and fin on the engine. Periodically, I will brush some snow off and then in the spring, I will have a couple of large ice cubes where the tarp has sagged. And then in the spring, take it off and put on the other cover. --- Jerry/Idaho

Just leave it down here in Florida "with the keys of course" and we will keep the snow off and the fuel fresh! ;)
