Hey guys do to current economic times "no job no house" I have to store my boats outside :( Has anyone tried the shrink wrap method before ? any pro's and or cons to it ? I live in nor cali so I am not to much worried about temp just moisture and or mold condition. I do not have the newest or nicest boat but it is clean and good shape for it's age and I work hard to keep it that way. I just don't want to have it shrink wrap and pull it off to find a inside full of mold. Any feed back or info is greatly appreciated thank you :)

I used to have our old boat shrink wrapped for outdoor storage and they inserted a plastic vent into the plastic that allowed it to breathe.

Gotta have vents, preferably active ventilation. If the air inside the boat hits the dew point, you'll get condensation. If you get condensation, you'll get mold. And lots of it.

I do remember some horror stories over the years of people uncovering their boats that were put away spotless in the fall....
