Types of boat storage

Renting boat storage in River Falls, Wisconsin, is an ideal solution to keep your watercraft safe, secure, and in top condition. Whether you opt for outdoor, covered, or indoor storage, you can rest assured knowing your boat is protected from the elements and ready for your next adventure on the water.

For your convenience, here are several types of boat storage you can find in the residential areas around River Falls:

  • Outdoor Boat Storage: This type of storage involves keeping your craft in an open space, such as a driveway or a backyard. Offering a cost-effective choice, outdoor storage is prevalent in River Falls due to the abundance of residential spaces available. As well as being a reasonably priced option, your boat will be easily accessible for those spontaneous fishing trips or sailing endeavors.
  • Covered Boat Storage: Providing your watercraft some protection against the elements, covered boat storage involves renting spaces like carports or under-deck areas. This method adds an extra layer of protection from sun damage while maintaining easy accessibility.
  • Indoor Boat Storage: This storage option offers the highest level of protection, making it ideal for maintaining your boat during the off-season. With indoor storage, you can keep your boat in a garage or a residential shed, safeguarding it from weather extremes and providing optimal maintenance conditions.
  • Private Dock Storage: Also referred to as wet storage, this involves keeping your boat on a residential dock right on the water. It's particularly beneficial for those with waterfront properties in River Falls, providing immediate access to the water whenever the mood strikes.

Each of these storage options provides unique benefits and suits different boat owners based on their needs and situation. Regardless of the type of boat storage you choose, ensuring your watercraft is well-stored and taken care of will prolong its life and enhance your boating experience in beautiful River Falls.

Choosing boat storage

Selecting the right boat storage in River Falls, Wisconsin, involves careful consideration of the dimensions of your vessel, the accessibility of the storage location and the safety and proximity of the locale to your residence or favorite marina.

  • Accessibility: Ideally, your storage location should be accessible to you whenever you need access. Whether it's an early morning fish trip or a late night cruise, the hours of operation should match your boating lifestyle. Furthermore, the ease of moving your boat in and out of the location is pivotal. If it’s a struggle to park your boat, it might not be the best spot for your watercraft.
  • Location Consideration: The proximity of the storage location to your home or preferred body of water is another important factor. The closer it is, the less time you'll spend in transit. Moreover, the safety of the location is essential. A residential area with low crime rates makes for a secure boat storage option.
  • The Right Size: Your boat size is a primary factor in choosing a storage location. The space should be large enough to accommodate your boat, including the trailer. Consider extra space for moving around the boat, performing maintenance or storing boating gear. Remember, a tightly cramped space could lead to potential damage.

Climate considerations

When seeking boat storage in River Falls, Wisconsin, it's key to keep in mind the region's weather patterns. The city experiences a full range of seasons, with average high temperatures around 83 degrees Fahrenheit in the peak of summer and average lows dipping to 7 degrees in the thick of winter.

To protect your boat, consider implementing protective measures. Utilize boat covers, tarps or shrink wrap for a basic level of defense against the elements. These coverings can shield the watercraft from harmful UV rays in the summer and excessive moisture during the rainy season.

In the winter, when temperatures drop significantly, extra care is needed due to the risk of freezing. Winterizing your boat, which includes draining the engine, adding antifreeze, and cleaning thoroughly, can help prevent damage from the harsh winter conditions. Regardless of whether the storage is indoors or outdoors, taking these steps can help ensure your boat stays in optimal condition all year round.

  • Security: Give your boat the safest storage possible with a listing that offers protection such as a padlock, access code, security cameras, or all-day surveillance.
  • Here's how to get your boat ready for long-term storage:

  • Make any needed repairs.
  • The battery should be left on board and connected if you're storing in the water. If you pick dry vs. wet storage, disconnect the battery.
  • Flush the engine and, if possible, store it in a vertical position.
  • Add fuel stabilizer to the gas tank.
  • Apply a protective spray to the vinyl.
  • To avoid tire damage for long-term boat trailer storage, the wheels should be put on wood blocks.
  • If you choose outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover or boat wrap, which you can find at Cabela's, located at 8400 Hudson Rd, Woodbury.

    You should winterize your boat, as River Falls winter temperatures can get below 35. First, flush and drain the engine, and keep it from corroding by adding lubricant. Drain the fuel lines or, if keeping gas in the tank, add a fuel stabilizer. Replace the engine filters and check the oil, hoses, clamps, and belts. Drain the coolant and use antifreeze. Clean and wipe down the exterior and interior of the boat to remove moisture. Last, plug exhaust outlets to prevent rodents from entering.

    Avoid storing a boat outside in the winter. River Falls's high humidity in the winter months can invite mold and mildew to develop in your boat. If you need to rent outdoor boat storage, use a vented boat cover. Climate-controlled boat storage offers the best protection against high humidity.

    Yes, it's recommended you have insurance. Check your renter's or homeowner's insurance policy to confirm that it covers potential theft or damage while your boat is in storage.
