I'm keeping my boat in a closed storage facility. Would you guys recommend putting a tarp over it to keep dust out?

If you do go the tarp route, just make sure it will breathe a little - some sort of airflow. I'm sure you've seen condensation build up before on tarps even when it's under a roof. I did a tarp over my regular cover when storing outdoors with good results - I actually used two smaller tarps, layered with a little overhang opening in between to allow some airflow.

@ Berg yea mine comes off pretty regular in the garage as i tend to climb in there at least once a week to check on the battery charger and such.

@ Sny id look at Harbor Freight they carry same tarps as anyone else and pretty decent prices.
