Dickie,
If I were you I’d seriously think about finding a farm somewhere and hire some barn space. Your wooden W needs to be stored inside over winter. Be patient, spring will arrive sooner than you think. Read up on the theory meanwhile. The cover you describe is not for your boat, try selling it to someone with a GRP W, and then invest in a polycotton cover. If you do find somewhere to store your W then you will not need to cover. I’m not sure if you are a member of a club, but usually there are club boats that you can practice on meanwhile? Another option might be to store your W upside down and raised off the ground ( I do mean on land).
