Boat Storage and Your Needs

Boat StorageYour boat can be a source of great times with friends and family, as well as lasting memories. If a marina berth or private dock isn’t in your plans, there’s a significant off-season to your boating, or your home doesn’t have the space for a trailered boat, boat storage might be the best option for you.

Consider the size of your boat and its trailer when looking into boat storage. These considerations should not be only the length and beam of the trailered boat, but also the weight of the trailered boat and the tongue weight. Also consider how the boat will need to be moved into and out of the storage site, and if your towing vehicle has the turning radius to accomplish the job.

Will the engine and other parts of the boat need special treatment for a wintertime storage? Make sure to plan or schedule this winterizing if you plan on using boat storage for a longer period of time.
