Even though most boats are designed to hold up to tough weather conditions and lots of water, they often don't fare well in heavy rain or very cold temperatures. One way to offer better protection without the cost of indoor, off-season storage is to purchase a shelter you can install on your own property. You may not want to incur this extra cost but just recall how much you invested in your boat and it may become clear that this extra cost is worth it. One of the best advantages of an outdoor storage shelter is that it can keep your boat up to 15 degrees warmer than other types of coverings. There are many types of portable shelters on the market so you'll be able to buy one that suits your needs based on size, construction and cost.
