It's that time of the year when I am jealous of all of the southern boaters and when us Mid-Atlantic boaters have to start winterizing for the season.
Depressing.

I'm not going ask about winterization process, but I did want to ask if people who do not have access to indoor storage, shrink wrap or just use the mooring cover in the winter?

I added shipping cover to your choice list....I use that - or store indoors - depending on if it is at the dealer getting serviced (which I tend to do here in the winter since I have them fix warranty issues)

I used my shipping cover until it started leaking. Had it shrinkwrapped last year, and the boat looked exactly as it did when I put it away. I won't use anything else now.

I remove all the cushions, carpet, put scented dryer sheets throughout and use pledge wax on the vertical surfaces. Then get it wrapped! It’s stored outdoors.

Mooring cover, with cheap Amazon cover over that just to keep the sun off and hopefully make it last longer

Getting mine wrapped for outdoor storage. I pulled out all the removable cushions for home storage.
