One of the problems of boat ownership is having the hassle of storing your boat in a safe and convenient location. One of the reasons why there are not twice as many boat owners around is due to the inconvenience of storing such a large asset. Premium boat storage space at marinas is often unavailable while storing in garages and driveways take up lots of room. When thinking about boat storage options it is a great opportunity to also think about all the other factors involved surrounding boat usage. For most people, apart from costs for boat storage, the convenience and ease to get the boat into the water plays a big part in their decision making. Public boat ramps across Australia are becoming more and more crowded and wait times during the summer and public holidays are so out of control that boaties are searching for alternate options.
Dry boat stack storage is having your boat stored in a managed rack storage facility when it is not in use, by storing your boat in a storage facility, it can provide security, convenience of launching and save on maintenance costs. Being able to arrive at the marina with your boat already launched and waiting for you with a full tank of fuel can save the hassles and reduce any stress associated with getting your boat in the water. Some of the advantages include:
Having your boat stored in a dry rack storage facility provides exceptional security for your boat. In order to retrieve a boat from a dry rack requires access to a boat forklift, therefore having a boat stored on these dry stacks provides an increased level of protection for your pride and joy. In addition to this, you are able to sleep easy knowing that vandalism is less likely to occur in a secure storage facility compared to having your boat store in your home driveway.
Convenience in Launching
Because storage facilities are close to the water, it really takes all the stress away and makes it so much easier to use your boat. There is nothing better than having your boat already launched and waiting for you at the marina, no need to worry about fueling or hooking up the trailer and waiting in line at overcrowded public boat ramps. Simply enjoy the day in the water and have it returned to storage at the end of the day.
Save on Maintenance
With your boat stored in undercover dry racks, it can help reduce on maintenance costs associated with anti fouling and provide protection from all the elements of the weather. Storing your boat in a dry condition helps to keep your boat in good condition and protects your investment. Storing your boat in wet storage can cause corrosion and increase overall maintenance costs. Storing a trailer boat at home requires a large amount of space and the typical home garage does not cater for the dimensions to fit a boat, therefore it can be exposed to damage from the weather.
