Types of Boat Storage

San Diego provides a great environment to store watercrafts due to its mild climate and proximity to the sea.

  • Indoor boat storage offers the most protection from the elements, as the boat is housed in a large, temperature-controlled garage.
  • Outdoor boat storage keeps the boat in a lot, exposed to the elements and other potential hazards, but with an added layer of security and protection.
  • Covered boat storage provides protection from the elements and potential tampering, as the boat is shielded from the elements with a roofed cover, similar to a carport.

Choosing Boat Storage

When considering boat or watercraft storage in San Diego, there are many factors to consider. This includes:

  • Location - Whether it is a garage, backyard, driveway, or parking lot, the location should be convenient and secure.
  • Size - Storage space should be large enough to accommodate the size of the boat or watercraft.
  • Accessibility - The space should be easily accessible for vehicle and/or trailer.
  • Protection - The area should be shielded from the elements, such as wind, rain, and sun, to protect the vessel.
  • Security - The space should be secure with locks or other measure to deter theft.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent storage for a boat or other watercraft in San Diego, climate and weather should be considered. San Diego is mild for most of the year, but during the summer months, temperatures can rise to an average high of 75°F and a low of 65°F. In winter, temperatures can drop to an average low of 45°F and a high of 60°F. In order to protect a watercraft from the elements, it is recommended to use a protective covering that is specifically designed for the size and type of watercraft. It is also important to check the quality of the storage facility for adequate ventilation, stability, and protection from the elements. Additionally, adequate security should also be taken into consideration.
