We'd been talking about how to handle covering HB for the winter, including if we were going to do it at all. The weather was 47, rainy and windy and I thought for sure we'd just hold off on it. But then the sun started to come out, it warmed up (a little) and we decided to just do it, it might not be pretty but it would be covered. The lady in the ship store told about a good place to get heavy duty tarps, so off we went for tarps and supplies.
We just kind of made things up as we went, cutting slits in the tarp to get around the rigging and stanchions and using a LOT of duct tape. We're hillbilly like that.

In addition to our duct tape party, we used lots of line to keep the tarps as close as possible to the boat, hopefully stalling the wind a little bit from tearing them apart.

Next time we're at the boat we'll be taking home some interior cushions to be reupholstered as well as the companionway stairs so we can refinish them. Baby steps...
