Sailing the lakes and seas is a blast, but it's equally important to know how to store your boat properly when it's time to head back to land. In this guide, we'll break down the essential steps for storing your boat like a pro.

1 | Picking the Right Storage Facility

The first thing to do is choose where to store your boat. Uncovered storage works great and is especially budget friendly. Look for additional perks like good security, and monitored access when deciding on a facility.

2 | Getting Your Boat Ready for Storage

Proper preperation is key to keeping your boat in good shape during its downtime. Here's what you need to do:

1. Thoroughly Clean Your Boat:

Before putting your boat away, give it a good cleaning especially if it's been in salty water. Take our all your belongings, drain the bilge and tanks, and flush the water system to prevent mold and bacteria.

2. Check for Damage and Fix It:

Look for any cracks or signs of wear. Fix them up before storing your boat to prevent problems from getting worse. Secure loose itemms in your boat to stop them from bouncing around during storage transportation.

3. Prepare for Winter (If Needed):

If you're storing your boat in a cold place or during the colder months, do some winterizing. That means draining the water system, using antifreeze, and protecting the plumbing from freezing.

4. Take Care of Tires, Engine, and Fuel System:

Make sure everything that moves is in good shape. Check and inflate your trailer tires, secure moving parts, and add a fuel stabalizer to the tank. If possible, disconnect the battery or use a trickle charger to keep it juiced up.
