    Default wire crate cover

    With warm weather upon us, my dogs are crated behind the wheelhouse in their wire crates. I am looking for a waterproof crate cover for those days (like today!) where i need a little extra protection from them from rain

    Thanks in advance

    It would be ok during a rain but if your not there to take it off it could get hot very quickly afterward. A white herculite material would be more expensive but would keep them much cooler and it would outlast a blue tarp 10x over.
    On the flip side if you lose it going down the road is another story.

    What about the material used to shrink wrap the boats in the winter? That stuff lasts thru our Maine winters on boats left at water's edge. I think they discard it when they unwrap them in the spring, so you could even just recycle some larger pieces.
