SELECTING DRY STORAGE FOR YOUR BOAT

With school back in session and summer coming to an end, you may find yourself using your boat less frequently. It might make sense to use “wet” storage at a marina if you continue to take your boat out often, but even then, there are many reasons to consider “dry” storage on land. Whether or not you choose Big Item Storage to protect your boat, you should carefully consider the benefits to storing your boat on dry land.

Boats left in the water can often take damage to the outer hull, especially if not carefully monitored. Even the smallest crack in the fiberglass can allow water to seep in, which can cause severe damage. This can result in costly repairs or replacement of parts long before their time. You cannot be on your boat 24-7, so you might not even be aware of any damage to the hull until it’s too late.

Damage from storms can also result in unexpected repair or replacement to other parts of the boat. It can even lead to your boat sinking. Living on the Gulf Coast, we get used to preparing for hurricanes and tropical storms, but even a strong thunderstorm can affect your boat. Things like debris, strong winds, and hail can cause a large amount of harm to your boat, leaving you with expensive and time-consuming repairs.

Leaving your boat in the water also exposes it to the merciless Texas sun. But storing your boat on land at Big Item Storage means you have a dedicated storage space that protects your boat from the elements. You’ll know your boat is safe and secure, without the large marina fees.
