covering 13' for the winter

I thought of running a pvc pipe from the top of the motor to the bow with a saw horse in the boat to support the middle.I wanted to put something under everything to avoid scratching the gel coat.Would a rug be ok?Do I need an indoor/outdoor carpet to avoid color running?
Any other ideas on covering a 13'Sport?

On my 1985 15' Sport, I rigged a 90° PVC fitting that fits over the bow light. I necked it down to 1" Schedule 40 PVC running toward the engine. At 3.5' from the bow light, I used a T fitting to drop a leg to the floor. Another 3' back, I went through a 4-way fitting which spans to each side rail, and continues through a 45° to increase the height of the cover at the middle of the boat. 8" further back, another 45° fitting continues the main pipe toward the rear of the boat sloping slightly toward the stern to coax water to flow off... 3.5' further back, I have two 45° fittings mated essentially together to drop the height of the main tube back to the level of the front arms that reach to either side of the boat and hold onto the rails, and arms span to each side rail to hold this tail piece up.
