Summer Is Ending! Have You Looked for Boat Storage Units?

Handy Space has the kind of boat storage units you need. We have plenty of room for whatever type of watercraft you own, whether it’s a jet ski, a mini-yacht, or something in between. In this post, we’d like to share a few handy boat storage tips to keep your beloved possession safe and sound during the off-season.

  • Give your watercraft a thorough cleaning top to bottom. Wash the topsides, the bottom, the deck, and any trim or hardware. Inspect the exterior for blisters and repair as necessary. Allow any canvas to dry thoroughly and store it away in a watertight container.
  • Remove any food stains, spills, or crumbs to prevent mice and other pests from making your boat their winter home. This is less likely to happen if you keep your watercraft in one of our boat storage units.
  • Flush the cooling system with fresh water to remove salt, dirt, and other potential contaminants. Drain all water from the system to avoid possible freezing (yes, that can happen even in San Antonio!).
  • Use a good engine cleaner to remove varnish, carbon deposits, and anything that might gum up the works. Running combustion cleaner through the fuel system is a good idea as well. Spraying fogging oil into the air intakes will create a protective layer over internal engine parts, which will protect the motor throughout the winter.
  • Lubricate all moving parts as directed in your owner’s manual. Grease fittings, engine couplings, hinges, latches, switches, and linkages all rate special attention.
