How to Store Your Boat This Winter

Boating is a fun summer pastime. There’s nothing like cruising around the water or having a pleasant sunset sail. However, what should you do with your boat once the season ends? Finding a storage space for your boat can be difficult.

Most of us don’t have garages that can accommodate such large vehicles, and leaving your boat unprotected in the marina over the winter can cause serious damage.  If you’re having trouble deciding what to do with your boat come winter, follow these simple boat storage tips.

Shrink Wrap

Serious damage can result from leaving your boat outside over winter without any protection.  Leaving your boat exposed to the elements for an extended period of time may harm your boat’s appearance and performance. Exposure to snow, rain, and heavy winds can cause rusting, which can lead to motor failure. Winterizing your boat by having it shrink-wrapped does a lot of protect your boat from environmental damage. Covering your boat with shrink wrap allows you to leave it outside without fear of damage from the elements.

Clean and Repair Before Storage

Cleaning and repairing your boat thoroughly at the end of the season is a great way to prevent winter damage. A boat that is in top condition going into storage is more likely to be in great condition when coming out of storage. Make sure that your boat is free of all excessive dirt and rust. If dirt and rust have been building on your boat over the summer, they will continue to build over the winter and will be difficult to remove come spring.

Migson Public Storage offers secure, environmentally-protected outdoor storage for your boat. We can ensure that your boat is properly prepared for winter storage so you can keep sailing smoothly in the spring.
