As a new boat owner, there are a few more things to buy and consider before hitting the waves. Do you have cleaning gear, safety equipment, life vests, and boat storage? There are a few options to choose from when considering where and how to store your boat when it’s not in use.
Proper boat storage will keep your vehicle protected from the elements, safe from damage, and ready to use as soon as you need it. Read on to learn about the differences between wet and dry boat storage:
- Wet boat storage. Many boat owners choose to store their boats directly in the water at a boat rental facility. This offers boat owners the ability to conveniently prepare and move their boat when they’re ready to embark on a trip and, after returning, keep it ready for its next use. This saves time and takes away the hassle of launching your boat each time you want to use it. Some wet boat storage options are covered, providing extra protection against harmful effects of nature.
- Dry boat storage. This type of storage can also include covered and uncovered protection. By storing your boat on land, you can protect it from water damage, rust, and other effects caused by constant moisture exposure. Dry boat storage also allows owners to thoroughly inspect their boats—from top to bottom—before taking them out on the water. It’s important to detect problems on land instead of encountering them on the open water.
