boat storage

9 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone knows of anyplace that would winterize my boat and has storage..prefer heated...but not necessary...its a 20ft searay...I figured it would be best just to leave it up there for the winter..so I have a good excuse to go running up there in may...... grin.giftongue.gif

Wilson's marine on west end. Probably several other choices on east end.

I keep mine in the water at Shamrock Marina near Moccasin Point. Randy is the guy you want to talk to there. They have indoor rack storage. Not heated, but out of the elements at least. Good prices, and nice people too.

Shamrock has winterized and stored my I/O for years and I trust them completely. Call Randy.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
