Climate Considerations

When looking to rent storage for a boat or other watercraft in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, it is important to consider both the climate and weather conditions in the city. During peak summer months, the average high temperature can reach around 80°F, and during peak winter months, the average low temperature is around 15°F. High windsand heavy precipitation can occur throughout the year, so it is important to take steps to protect the watercraft from adverse weather and potential damage.

Taking these factors into consideration, it is recommended that boat owners use protective covers in order to protect their craft from the elements. This can include covers for the boat itself, as well as for any other items stored on board, such as sails, ropes, and other supplies. Additionally, it is important to check the storage area for adequate drainage and ventilation to ensure that all items are kept dry and secure. Adequate maintenance and service of the watercraft should also be conducted regularly to ensure proper functioning, performance, and safety.

  • Use these tips to prepare your boat for long-term storage:

  • Make any necessary repairs.
  • If you go with dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery. If you go with wet boat storage, leave the battery on board and connected.
  • The engine should be flushed and stored vertically, if possible.
  • Use fuel stabilizer.
  • Use a protective spray on the vinyl.
  • For long-term boat trailer storage, put wood blocks under the wheels to avoid tire damage.
  • Put a vented cover on or wrap your boat, if you go with outdoor storage, which can often be found at Bass Pro Shops/Cabela's Boating Center, located at 1 Cabela Way, Richfield. You might also visit REI, located at 13100 W Capitol Dr, Brookfield, for other boating-related products.

    You should winterize your boat, as Milwaukee temperatures can get below 35 during the winter. First, flush and drain the engine, and protect it from corrosion by adding lubricant. If you're keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. If not, drain the fuel lines. Replace the engine filters and check the oil, belts, hoses, and clamps. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Remove moisture by cleaning and wiping down the inside and outside of the boat. Last, prevent rodents from entering by plugging the exhaust outlets.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. Milwaukee's high humidity in the winter can invite mold and mildew to develop in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Rent climate-controlled boat storage to be fully protected against high humidity.

    Insurance is suggested for boat storage in Milwaukee. Your renter's or homeowner's insurance policy should cover potential theft or damage while your boat is being stored.
