A great benefit about living in Florida is access to the beach and the opportunity to enjoy plenty of water sports and even boating. For those who own a boat, however, it’s not always fun trying to figure out where you’re going to store it and exactly how you should prepare the boat for storage. Hopefully, these quick tips will make things a little easier for you.
The size of the boat and of course the owner’s manual with instructions will determine how the boat should be stored.
There is always one consistent rule when storing just about anything, you should always ensure it’s nice and clean. Remove as much gear from the boat as possible. Empty the icebox and remove food that could attract insects or rodents. Air out the cushions or any pillows you might have and wash the blankets and linens if you have those. With all that gear out of the cabin, give the boat a good scrubbing from front to back. In the process, be sure to wipe out the lockers and drawers. You should clean your bilge as well.
Next you should refill your tanks and stabilize your fuel. Change your engine oil and replace all the filters. Check the coolant in closed cooling systems for the proper degree of protection. Check the hoses, belts and clamps. Clean and disconnect the batteries. You should completely drain your fresh water tanks and water heater. It’s also highly recommended that you add non-toxic antifreeze directly to your water tank and pump it directly through your hot and cold plumbing.
Covering the boat while its being stored is a good idea; you should also provide structural support under boat covers and tarps. Finally, deciding where you store your boat is important. A gated facility is always best. Self-storage properties will oftentimes have both indoor and outdoor storage options.

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. While everyone can appreciate the great weather it’s also a time when most people have an overwhelming need to declutter and organize their wardrobe or closets. The job can sometimes seem daunting but it doesn’t have to be. Start with the little things first, like putting away clothing or items that you haven’t worn or used in over a year. Why not get paid for your cleaning efforts by having a garage sale. You can even do some good by donating items that someone else might find useful. As for the things that you really need but simply don’t have enough room for, renting a small self-storage unit is always a good option to create more space while still having the access you need to your stuff.
Decide what’s most important and arrange your “to-do” list accordingly. Before starting, you might consider getting some clear plastic containers and space saver bags along with bins for storing items. For those of you with smaller living spaces it’s always best to invest in furniture that can serve dual purposes like an ottoman that doubles as storage for extra pillows and throws.
You don’t have to do it alone. Anything becomes fun, even cleaning, with good food and music. Feel daring enough to change the color on your walls? Why not throw a painting party and invite your friends over to help. The most important thing is to simply start. Once you get going you’ll quickly realize that decluttering can be fun and it will help you to appreciate the space you have once more.
