After many trials and errors, we have found that winterizing boats with the Nickels Boat Works winterizing kit is the only quick and reliable method. Their kit comes with a tarp, a tenting brace, and the necessary lines. Their system installs very quickly (under 30 minutes), and last without trouble through an entire winter season. Their winterization system works for boats that have trailering covers in place, and ones that don't have covers.

Here are the installation steps:
-If the mast is on the mast stand, remove it and set it on the deck of the boat.
-Tie the rear support line to the aft most portion of the trailer near the bunks with bowlines. [picture of the tie down hooks built in to the trailer] The line (when stretched out) should peak at the skeg. [picture of the tie down adjusted correctly]
-Tie the main tent line to the rear support line with a bowline. [picture of the rear support line and the main tent line tied together]
-Run the main tent line through the cleat on the tenting brace and place carpet under each leg of the tenting brace.
-Install the redirection block on to the mast stand. [picture of the redirection block]
-Run the main tent line from the tenting brace to the redirection block. [picture of the main tent line mostly installed.]
-Tie the main tent line down to the tongue of the trailer and snug the main tent line so that it is very taught.
-Verify that the tenting brace, main tent line and the rear support line look well installed.
-Throw the tarp over the tent lines and tie it down to the trailer
