Winter prep


This will be my first year putting the boat up for winter.
In the past (40 years ago) we covered our family Coaster with a canvas.
When I purchased 4800 it was shrink wrapped, that my plan for this year.
The mast will go on top across the pulpits. When I unwrapped, they had taped the plastic to the mast and it was a PITA to get off.
What do people do to protect the mast?
Having rotator cuff surgery so I kind of need it set up to be bullet proof.
Thanks, Pete
