Should I Shrink wrap My Boat This Winter For Storage?

Should I Shrink wrap My Boat This Winter For Storage?Unfortunately, summer is coming to an end and that means that boating season is coming to an end, and it is just about time to store your boat for the off season. Now comes the difficult part of storing your boat for the off season. We have listed the advantages and disadvantages of all your options for storing your boat this winter, however, we will explain why shrink wrapping your boat this winter is the best option for you and your boat.

Storage Yard

  • Finding a boatyard that can properly store your boat during the wintertime can be difficult as you have to first find a yard that has room for your boat. Also, you have to trust that the yard staff will not store your boat to close to another boat causing potential damage. Another important factor with a boatyard is to make sure that the staff has something in place to prevent animals and rodents from inhabiting your boat during the wintertime.

Boat Cover

  • Why not just use the boat cover that with your boat. This is an easy method to debunk as the covers that come with your boat are great for a sudden rainstorm or just for a few days to cover your boat for non-usage. Most of the time, these covers are ventilated for airflow purposes which is awful for long term storage as mildew can easily begin to grow and form.

Shrink wrapping

  • Not too many negatives to talk about here other than maybe the cost of shrink wrapping your boat. Of course, there is a decent cost associated with shrink wrapping your boat; however, there is always a hefty fee with storing your boat at a yard, and mildew removal is also very expensive. Shrink wrapping your boat will answer all your needs for winter storage as it will prevent animals and rodents from entering, and shrink wrap is non permeable and will prevent moisture from getting inside your boat and having mildew grow inside your boat over the wintertime.
