Winter covers
Author Last Post
If you mean on the Hard canvas are best and will last longer but a good heavy duty tarp will be a lot cheaper and you’ll get a few winters out of it.

These are the best as far as I know.  I’m sure they are pricy but I’ve seen plenty of them and they are top shelf.

Be careful with shrink wrap has to be vented white and try to keep a space between your hull. 
In the spring a few hot days can fade your hull and ruin your day. The old tarp open at both ends is best.

Many of us use 20 x 30 foot heavy duty tarps. They hold off our heavy winter snow as long as the ridge pole, usually the mast, is high enough off the deck to create a decent angle.
