Another storing SIB

I have a PVC SIB and store in on its trailer under a Heavy Duty poly tarp. We are having a spell of hot weather at present (high 30's C). I notice that the underside of the tarp is shady but the underside of the tarp is very hot. Is this an issue for long term storage outdoors. Annually our temps range from -9C to 40C.

I didn't do the conversions to Fahrenheit, but heat is the biggest killer to glue. Want to remove glue? Apply heat!

What I would recommend doing is venting your tarp as best as possibly. I face the same challenge and vent mine front and back. I do this by using a plastic stick similar to a piece of wood that would also work, and tie a rope from that wood just in front of the bow all the way over the top of the outboard. This creates a way for hot air to easily escape on either end. In fact on my high side (My driveway is a slope) I put a cross bar to keep the tarp open. I use a bunch of quick clamps from the hardware store to hold the tarp in place thru wind, rain, and everything else.

Ideally you want a "shed" type canopy that stands off the boat to let the heat escape.

Not that we get too hot where i live but a couple of wood cross pieces or a crutch to hold up an aluminium pole & cover like a ridge with an opening at each end may help .
