It’s always a good idea to overprepare for hurricanes on the Gulf Coast. After experiencing Harvey in 2017, many boat owners are looking for better ways to be prepared this season. Boat Stop’s large storage units are the best line of defense to protect your boat from the elements. The large spaces keep your boat fully enclosed to minimize damage.
Even less severe storms can do a number on the boat’s integrity and finish. If you’re docked in a marina or at the back of your property, high winds and choppy water can cause the boat to bang against the dock. Water and wind pelt the surface and windows. The wind and water also carry debris which can be thrown against your boat causing extensive damage. If the integrity of the structure is breached, you’re looking at an expensive fix for the water damage, maybe even a total loss. What many people don’t think about is that your boat can also cause damage to your dock, the bulkhead, and your property.
It’s important to have a plan lined up well in advance of a storm. Finding storage at the last minute is difficult. Transporting your boat out of town ahead of a storm is difficult, and if you’re evacuated, might not be possible.
A storage unit is your best option for protecting your boat and your property while maintaining access to it when the waters are calm. Whether you store with us short-term or long-term, you’ll know your boat is in the best place possible.
Whether you’re fishing this weekend or enjoying other activities, let Boat Stop Storage keep your boat safe and protected. For more information or to reserve your spot, check out our website here or call us at 361-238-7177.
