He's just looking to keep it clean.

I primarily want to keep my snowblower free of dirt and dust. Sounds like simply covering it with a cotton sheet is the way to go.

|cdestuck||Go to a yard sale, buy a two buck bed sheet and go to Harbor Freight and buy a couple of 99 cent spring clamps to clip it to the blower. Plastic tarps suck as they can trap in moisture and cause rust. Sheets are breathable. I try to find flannel|

Covering your boat traps moisture. I faithfully covered my chris craft open bow because it was stored outside but on sunny days I would take off the cover just to let it air out.
My current boat is a Sea Nymph fishing boat. Flat floors and removable seats. It's a tool for fishing, not a fancy fiberglass boat like the last one.

You're right about mice, especially if you store it in an outside shed. Though in my shed the way it is built they can't get in. They would have to chew a hole somewhere to gain access.. Mine has been up for 14 years and never had a critter of any kind make a home in it. Had bees get in I fixed that with a screen. One thing I can't keep out is spiders, those suckers get into everything.
I had possums living underneath, and the rabbits like it under there too.
Fixed that problem too.
I have my boat in the garage too, I put a king size sheet draped over the windshield going down on the cockpit with the rest on the bow. I have my table saw in the garage, I grind sometimes, use the sander among other things. The sheet keeps the bow, windshield and cockpit nice and clean.
Plus it is such an easy thing to do takes all of less than a minute to throw the sheet over. But to each his own.
When I used to live in an apartment and parked the boat in the yard, I covered the boat with custom made canvas, faithfully. After every use I would wash it down let it dry and cover till the next weekend. Even if I was going back out the next day, I would throw the cover on.
It keeps the bird crap off, I had a black cherry tree and that stuff in bird crap was hard to remove!
Wintertime I would brace it up under the cover and brush the snow off every snowfall. Kept the weight off. All my years of keeping it outside nothing ever took up residence inside. Maybe I was just lucky?
I have a small piece of sheet covering my table saw too, I think it helps keeping the dust out of the motor when it sits waiting for the next useage.
A small piece on top of my 9.9 outboard, a piece covering the 70 horse on the boat.
When not in use I have a sheet covering my train layout too.
Hmmm, after writing this, maybe I have compulsive sheet disorder syndrome now that I think of it. Maybe I should seek out some professional help?
But like I said to each his own, everyone has their own way of doing things.
