Ours is outside under a full wrap canvas cover (thanks Poffshore! ).

What's the deal with cleaning the snow off? is the weight a big issue or what?

I got the bright idea last winter to leave the convertable top up under the tarp on my last boat. It was nice when getting inside and working on stuff ect. But the snow load crushed it Lesson learned...

I had a building lined up for the new boat but it's too long to get up the steep drive without bottoming the trailer. So it's also in the yard w/a tarp. Gonna buils a roof/carport structure this spring I think.

Enough snow and it will stretch the shrink wrap or if it's enough it will cave it in. I've also seen pools of water form because someone didn't put it up right.

Shrink wrap doesnt allow for any fresh air though??

I've used mil-du-gas hanging bags for 20 yrs and when you unrap in spring everything is good.

They used to make the potent stuff that burns your eyes when you opened cabin up in spring. The enviromentalists put a ban on the good stuff.

My guy puts vents at both ends to make sure that is not a issue.
