I have a 31' Cape Horn that I try my hardest to keep in great condition, but it is a constant battle since it is kept on a trailer out doors. I was looking for indoor boat storage in the HHI area, but there is nothing. For those of you out there that have boats that you want to keep looking great without having to clean/wax it all the time before use I have a question. Would you be willing to pay for an indoor storage unit that was conveniently located (within 2 miles) of a public ramp with direct ocean access? I have dry stored a boat in the past before and that is a decent option, but more pricey and you don't have 24 hr access to the boat...so when you want to clean it, you have to do it out side...when you want to leave early in the AM for a fishing trip, you have to leave it in the water over night. My other boats also got pretty dirty when stored in a rack building. Just on a bit of a fact finding mission at the moment...thanks for any and all feedback.

I keep my boat outside on a trailer and am very particular about keeping my boat clean.
I use a carver Specialty Boat Cover that covers the complete boat.
Keeps the dirt and debris off the boat as well as protecting the boat against the UV ray attack. I unsnap all the straps, roll the whole cover forward and store it in a large duffle bag.
They are great covers, made in the USA and I wouldn't ever consider not using it.
Will fix your problem of a dirty boat.

I had a T-Top cover for a previous boat and thought about getting another one for this boat as it is less expensive...would just love to be able to pull it indoors, open up all the hatches after cleaning it and letting it dry out and just keep it perfect...just trying to see if there is other interest out there as I would love to build something of the sort. Trying to see if numbers might work...hard part is finding land close enough to a ramp.
