    My "Boathouse" "garage" cost me about 15 grand and I can fit 3 of my boats in it. The house garage takes the 4th. My son built a Pole Barn for about 18 grand and it houses his 25 footer. When you pay megabucks for a boat and consider the maintenance costs, plus the huge depreciation when it sits outside and looks like **** after a few years, the indoor storage is really pocket change.

        I know Grand Island well, Mom is from North Tonawanda where I spent my early days and still visit.

          The Ouachita and the Appleby are ready. Still want to do some things on the Sylvan before it joins them for the winter.

              Built a timber frame boat cover a few years ago. Have since added an addition and a lean to on the shed to cover the fleet.

                  I know you have vents in the cover, and I'm sure before it is wrapped you mop out the bilge so there is not even a drop of water, but come Spring do you have ANY mildew or mold? Even a hint?

                      Some of you are blessed with the garages and pole barns!
                      My inlaws have a large pole barn and we would park our 19' Stingray in there however the 20' Wellcraft I feel is too big. It's a foot wider (very narrow doors) and the path there is very steep, muddy and narrow so we don't do it anymore.
