Default Indoor or Outdoor Storage

For those of us that don't have a permanent dock, do you store your boat indoors or outdoors? Also, what do you pay? Just curious.

While I agree that tgotch's link is improper, he's been a member for 4 years and is not exactly one of the sites most prolific posters. And his question is a valid one.

Yah but 4 years should have taught him something about this site; something like he shouldn't be advertising without becoming a vendor first!!!

I got a "tent." I've reinforced the sides with chain link fence so the walls are less stressed by the wind. I have also strung a tarp under the roof to take up some of the strain due to heavy snow.

Over-stretching the cover is the biggest installation error you can make. The top will wear first but if you get creative you can just put a new layer over it and secure the ends and sides with plywood sandwiches.

I've had about 12 years experience with these things to evolve it to my satisfaction. The style that uses 2inch pipe is preferable to the 1inch designs if you live anywhere that will get more than a light snow. My old neighbor took some interesting pictures of the first one I used, after 2ft of wet snow on a 1-inch design, lol. You can reinforce them but it takes a bit of effort and is not worth the price difference (imo).

Good luck!

I asked that the link be removed a couple days ago. It apparently is now gone.

I covered mine with a blue tarp, then parked it next to what would become the largest train fire in Kentucky history. Melted the tarp around the boat, creating a nice fit. Cost me about $40 a month.

i would have preffered something under cover, and away from two days of a raging toxic inferno.
