  Pipe insulation
  Posted by: pgeorg on Jul-05-13 7:13 AM (EST)
 

is what I use to keep the tarp off the boat and allow for airflow.

When I first stored outside, in a location that gets a bit of sun, I did not know about the airflow issue with the tarp and after about six months I had some blushing on the hull. I then used cable ties to to attach some foam pipe insulation to the inside and that seems to allow enough airflow and the blushing has not spread or gotten worse.

Pool noodles would also work, and they are of somewhat larger diameter.
