THE BASICS OF BOAT STORAGE

Your boat is the ticket to fishing, relaxing, and fun. But what happens to your boat when it’s not on the water? Where and how you store your boat is a big concern. With a little homework, you can make sure that your prized possession is safe from harm and ready for all your activities.

Of course, Insuring your boat is a must. However, many people don’t realize that their insurance might have restrictions governing how it’s stored. You’ll want to check your policy for any rules governing the place and type of storage to prevent risk of damage.

Storing at home isn’t necessarily an option. Many Home Owner Associations and some municipalities regulate storage of vehicles and boats. Violations carry hefty penalties, so you’ll want to carefully review any restrictions that regulate your property.

Large unit storage is generally your best option. You’ll have access to your boat when you need it, and it will be protected from the elements. If you use your boat frequently, prepping it for storage will be easier. However, if storing for months at a time, you’ll need to be sure your boat is prepped for storage. Removing personal items and checking for damage are always good ideas. Preparing batteries and electrical systems for storage is also important. No matter how you choose to store it, these steps offer maximum protection for your investment.
