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.

It’s hard to imagine that it’s already summertime which means the start of Hurricane Season. The 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season officially began on Sunday, June 1 and spans all of summer and most of fall, ending November 30th. The National Hurricane Center stresses the importance of early preparation for the months preceding June – November. Throughout the summer Florida experiences more prevalent activity for tropical storms and hurricanes. My Neighborhood Storage Center encourages everyone to take the necessary precaution to ensure that you and your family and belongings remain safe in the event of a natural disaster.
Outlined below are some basic hurricane safety actions from The National Hurricane Center:
• Know if you live in an evacuation area. Know your home’s vulnerability to storm surge, flooding and wind. Have a written plan based on this knowledge.
• At the beginning of hurricane season, check the supplies for your disaster supply kit, replace batteries and use food stocks on a rotating basis.
• During hurricane season, monitor the tropics.
• Monitor NOAA Weather Radio. It is an excellent / official source for real-time weather information and warnings.
• If a storm threatens, heed the advice from local authorities. Evacuate if ordered.
• Execute your family plan
For those of you with storage units, we encourage you to contact the office manager to ensure that your items are properly insured for natural disasters. They will provide you with more information about coverage options. Remember, start planning early and please feel free to call us at anytime should you have questions on how My Neighborhood Storage Center might be able to assist you throughout the hurricane season.
