Now Is the Time to Start Thinking about Winter Storage for Your Boat

boat shelter winterSummer will be over before you know it. If you enjoyed taking a boat out on the water, you will unfortunately have to store it for the winter. Now is the time to start to think about winter storage.

Time off in the winter can be hard on a boat, even though it isn’t being used. Long periods of inactivity can lead to increased wear and tear and cause your boat to break down next summer. Rust can spread if it is not treated, moisture can freeze, and lubrication can congeal.

In order to avoid these issues and expensive repair bills next summer, you need to protect your boat in the off-season. The best solution is to store it in a garage. If you don’t have enough space, you can wrap it and store it in your yard. Another solution is to store your boat in a portable garage.

A portable storage building will shelter your boat from winter snow that could allow moisture to seep into it. It can completely surround your boat to keep it dry all season. This can prevent water from damaging electrical systems and causing rust that could be costly to fix. It can also shield your boat from the sun’s UV rays that can cause damage to the paint, even on winter days.

Our boat storage buildings are sturdy and affordable. They are crafted with heavy-duty powder-coated steel frames and polyethylene covers and are anchored to the ground so they can stand up to harsh winter winds. A portable garage is the best place to store your boat for the winter if you do not have space in a traditional garage.
