Choosing boat storage

Deciding on a storage spot for your boat requires considering several key aspects. These factors can contribute towards ensuring that your boat is stored safely, conveniently and efficiently. The following points should be kept in mind:

  • Location: The storage location should ideally be close to your home or to your favorite dock for easy accessibility. Check the neighborhood to ensure it's safe and secure. It's beneficial if the route to the storage space is not too congested, allowing for easy maneuvering of your boat and trailer.
  • Accessibility: The storage space should have flexible hours that align with your boating schedule. You would want to ensure that you can retrieve or store your boat whenever needed. Check if there are any restrictions on accessing your boat during certain hours or seasons.
  • Size of the Space: The storage space should be able to accommodate your boat comfortably. Make sure to measure your boat, including trailer and any additional gear, to ascertain the dimensions of the space you require. Oversized areas allow for easy loading and unloading, and also offer space for any additional equipment or supplies you might need to store alongside your boat. Remember, it's always better to have a little extra space than not enough.

Climate considerations

Chattanooga experiences a humid subtropical climate, with hot, humid summers and mild winters, making boat storage considerations vital. On average, peak summer temperatures reach around 89 degrees Fahrenheit. In such heat, hull and deck damage could occur, therefore, consider a breathable boat cover to protect your watercraft. This will shield the boat from harmful UV rays and prevent a buildup of heat and moisture.

During the colder months, the average low temperature can dip to around 32 degrees Fahrenheit. During this time, it's important to winterize your boat. Winterizing involves draining any water from the engine and other components, and usually conducting a full engine and fuel system service. This helps to prevent freezing damage. While indoor storage isn't the sole solution, selecting a sheltered outdoor storage space can provide additional protection from the elements year-round.
