yes, no probs, better to keep it covered if you can, and well tied down in the recent winds

If stopping a sib for longer time periods, clean well all tubes and flooring, stains will be hard to remove if left unattended. If being PVC get a can of Aerospace Protectant 303, and apply a coat as suggested, excellent for UV ptotection. Place a thick boat cover, sib can be left all year round living outdoor.

Happy Boating

Yes. Make sure to check it periodically for animals (rats, mice, squirrels, badgers, giraffes, etc). You don't want them to chew holes in your nice boat.

It's the lovely people who like to help themselves to things that don't belong to them that worry me, I just need a week of work then I will have the roof a 8m x 6m garage, It's not surprising the neighbours don't ask me to do work when I have my own garage with windows and doors fitted and no fecking roof lol
