    Default Soft Top Advice

    Actually, soft sides. I had this done this summer. Do most people take them off for the winter or leave them on? PICT0011.jpg

    I'd take them off for the winter, by the way that boat looks great !!

    It would depend on the type of storage , If you have covered storage cover with a tarp and leave them on they will last longer as when they are off you will fold them up and then they sit all winter with a crease that will act different than if it was stretched on the boat.

    I'd leave them on if the boat is stored inside for the winter. If your boat is stored outside, I'd pull them and tarp the boat. Basically, I agree with what Big Bend had to say, been there, done that.

    If you do remove them, lay a bath towel on them and roll them up individually. No creases and the towel keeps it clean and protected.

    Thanks for the help, guys. She's a outdoor trailer queen so I took them off and since I have 2 big beach towels but no beach, I employed BK's suggestion. Slick!
