    I viewed a Cabrio that had been kept outside under a cover and the paint had microblisters where the cover had been in contact with the body. On the other side of the coin I have owned fibreglass sailing dinghys that have been left outside under a cover with no ill effects. BUT, the difference is one is painted and the latter is colour impregnated into the gel coat.
    I'd avoid in the case of the former.

    Just shows nothings ever straight forward as it seems - I declared myself lucky not to have suffered nd damage on Marlin or MG (which I suspect are both painted with 2pack epoxy - tougheer than Vinnie Jones)

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    I think I will not bother with a cover as she will be used most weeks from now on.

    Hope to see some, if not all, of you around in the coming year.

    Regards

    Adrian
