Default Winter/Indoor/ShrinkWrap Storage-New Jersey

Looking for indoor storage in NJ for the winter (21 regulator w/ T-top). Anyone know of a place?
If I cant arrange that, who do you have shrink wrap your boat? I'm near Long Beach Island. Any good recomendations and approx. cost per foot?
thanks...

Inside isn't cheap..... Winters yacht basin has inside storage ....but your looking at $40-45/ft and even at that they fill up real fast. Yard storage is around $15/ft for that size boat and I think shrink wrap is $10-12/ft .....The nice thing about that yard is that is completely fenced in and has a "keyed" gate to drive through for owner access….keeps the “casual browsers” from screwing around with your boat.

I've heard it real expensive to store it on LBI. Space is at a premium.

I know quite a few from there that drive them up to Forked River for the winter to my marina (Silver Cloud Harbour). Try to find one on the mainland it will surely be cheaper. Just for referrence my marina charges 22/ft. This inlcudes haul-out, acid washing the bottom, blocking and spring launch. Everything else is extra.

Another option is to get a trailer and haul her home if you have the vehicle and the room. This is what I do and it makes spring prep a lot easier to do in the driveway.

Reelnauti 's sugg. might be better ... Since its closer to you .... Also as mentioned haul, wash, block, re-launch in the spring included in the $15/ft rate( that goes up as the boat gets bigger).....again other stuff is extra …Whatever yard you choose make certain of the terms prior to them taking your boat …. I’ve heard stories of monster spring bills when you leave the yard ….determine that stuff up front (battery storage, fuel top offs, winterizing engines etc etc ) Remember a lot of yards get big bucks for labor $65-75/hr. I'm quite pleased with my yard but that might be out of your way ....
