Posted by

Boaters will discover a variety of benefits when it comes to putting their vessel in dry storage for a short stay or long term depending on their needs. Determine how often you’ll take the boat out to make sure you get the full advantage of dry storage.

And dry storage means just that, the boat is out of the water, secured in a dry space.

Away From the Elements

A benefit to dry storage is that the boat is protected from the elements ranging from the sun’s rays to rain. In Florida, dry boat storage is optimal due to the amount of rain and storms year round. Dry storage is definitely an advantage for boaters looking to protect their investment when the vessel is not being used for their enjoyment.
