Default Ice on your canvas cover?

Who else has this going on? The last snow was too wet and froze almost immediately...or I was at work when I COULD have removed it. Now it's a rock and we have a possible foot coming!!

Already have icicles coming through the T-Top.

Ahhhh....adventures in boating....

My canvas cover had rain coming thru it as it aged. Never thought about it until the first snow came in Nov and ice and water filled the boat. Temp fix was buy a cheap tarp from HD.

After brainstorming over some beer, decided to spray the new tarp with silicone spray. Bungee corded new tarp over the old canvas winter cover. Unreal! Everytime it snows, one smack of the tarp with a hockey stick and everything slides right off!
