Boat Storage Tips

Boat Storage Tips

Autumn is calling, and when the days grow cold, it's time to store your boat away. You may want to take it back out in a few months once the summer season rolls around, or you may wish to store your boat well beyond the next boating season. Regardless, there are proper tips you can take to keep your boat safe, including maintenance and choosing between different storage options. Read about these tips here and reserve your storage space today.


Personal Maintenance  

Before storing your boat away, make sure you give it a good, thorough cleaning. This means drying any wet parts of the boat to prevent mold and mildew from growing. Hang life jackets and swim shoes on hooks for proper air drying. Also, discard any trash/old food to prevent critters from reaching it. Take any fresh food with you. Aside from cleaning, you should also make sure to fix any leaking cracks, remove rust and correct vents that are not working.

Use Waterproof Storage Boxes for Accessories 

Waterproof storage boxes are a great way to keep your boat accessories safe and out of the way. Items like first aid kits, boat manuals, electronics or repair tools can easily be organized into storage boxes and taken out when needed. For additional storage for larger items like fishing rods, many boat owners use the bottom of seats under the deck. However, not all boats may have enough room or an interior space for storage. In this case, consider renting one of our storage units for extra storage space.

Choose the Right Type of Storage  

Natural outdoor elements can cause your boat to wear and tear, so that is why we offer convenient boat storage options. We offer covered and protected bays along with fenced areas for parking. Choosing the right type of storage depends on the size of your boat and whether you want covered roofing or not. Remember, your boat is safe with us and our gated locations and in-site personnel. And don’t forget, always use a cover to protect your boat from dirt and dust.

Decide On Your “Must-Haves”  

Create a list of all of the things you absolutely must-have. This list will include the things you cannot live without and the essentials that you use on a day-to-day basis. As for the things you want to keep, but don’t necessarily need every day, pack them away for storage!
