So, I don't have a "real" cover. I'm driving through a hurricane today after work for about 4 hours. I went out and bought one of those cheapo wal-mart covers thinking it could just get me by, but I don't think I even want to mess with trying to keep the thing from flapping all over the place during my drive. Should I just say screw it, it's a boat, it can get wet? I don't have wood in the boat, so it's not going to hurt anything, but it'll probably be wet on the carpet for the next couple of days since I don't have a fan available or anything. Once I get it to the lake, I'll put it in a covered slip...

I'm thinking she's gonna get a bath. What would you do?

Let it get we and don't even worry about it. Leave it out on the trailer in the sun to dry.

Leave it off and let it get wet. Even if I put my cover on it still gets wet.

Will do... hopefully the rain leaves sooner than later, but if all else fails we can just drink beer in the cabin. :D

Yeah, they're both out of it now. Normally I leave the rear one in, but I yanked that as well. Thanks
