Why not leave the enclosure up and closed when off the boat?

by Nancu

I'm leaving our boat on the hard in long term storage for 6-7 months. In Florida, where mildew in the cabin is a risk so I'm reluctant to store the enclosure down below. I usually leave everything in place when off the boat firva few months in the summer. And issues with doing that on the hard?

Yes, there is a big problem with leaving panels of your boat enclosure rolled up. Water will get trapped in the rolled up clears and the sun will hit that plastic with the water trapped in there and burn the plastic in
You will also have creases in the plastic that you will likely never get out. If you planned to roll it up can't you just take it off. Maybe take off one piece or maybe leave your zippers unzipped, but the plastic down. Anything but leaving them rolled up.
