"Manan was very friendly and easy to work with. The parking space was easy to get in and out of. My boat trailer is about 30' long and pretty wide with the axle pretty far back from the tongue so I was initially a little concerned about how it would fit, but it fit well, is a good location and no problems with access. I would still be using the space if I needed it. No issues, I am happy, thank you Manan."

Types of Boat Storage

Covington boat storage offers the ultimate outdoor storage solution for boats or other watercraft. Additionally, there are a few different storage options to choose from, depending on your needs, such as indoor, outdoor, and covered boat storage.

  • Indoor boat storage is the most secure option and allows you to store your boat in a private garage, ensuring it's protected from the elements and any potential theft.
  • Outdoor boat storage typically consists of parking lots or driveways and provides easy access to your boat but with less security.
  • Covered boat storage is a great way to protect your boat from the elements, such as sun and rain, while still allowing access to the boat when you need it. Carports are an example of covered boat storage.

Choosing Boat Storage

Finding an outdoor storage unit for your boat or other watercraft can be overwhelming, especially in Covington, Washington. When considering various units, it is important to consider the following:

  • Size: Make sure the unit is large enough to fit your boat and trailer.
  • Location: Consider the distance from the marina or other launch sites.
  • Security: Look for a unit with adequate security measures such as locks or fencing.
  • Weather: Check the unit for any risks of water damage or other weather-related issues.
  • Accessibility: Investigate the ease of access to the unit and ensure it is available during convenient hours.

Climate Considerations

When looking for a boat storage option in Covington, Washington, potential renters should consider both outdoor and indoor storage options. Outdoor storage is often preferable because it provides greater access to the boat as well as natural ventilation. During the summer months, temperatures in Covington can range from an average high of 81°F (27°C) to an average low of 55°F (13°C). In the winter months, the average high is 47°F (8°C) and the average low is 31°F (-1°C).

To protect boats stored outdoors, renters should consider using solid-state covers that are waterproof and breathable. Watercraft should also be thoroughly dried before being stored, and moisture should be removed regularly during storage. This helps minimize any potential damage to the boat caused by condensation buildup. Additionally, to further protect the boat from the elements, renters may want to invest in a quality tarp or a custom-made boat cover.
