the cover i have lets water in So why not throw a vinyl tarp over it.

Hi John,
My biggest concern for covering a boat cover with a vinyl tarp is abrasion. If the boat cover is made of Sunbrella, then the possibility exists that just the wind action movement alone, could cause some abrasion coming from the tarp. Abrasion is not sunbrella's strong point. You could give it a try, but I would check it often ,don't just put it on and forget about it.
Good luck.
