If you have ever lived near or around a marina, you know that there are many different ways for people to store their boats. With all the different options available, it can be a little tricky for people to know how best to store their boats and what kinds of storage options there are available to them. While there are certainly a variety of methods, if you are looking into opening a marina or are taking over ownership of a marina, there is one thing you absolutely have to have: a dry stack. What exactly is a dry stack? It is, most simply, a large warehouse where boats can be stored for people on stacked racks where their boats are then placed with a kind of fork lift machinery. This is an important way for people to store their boats because a dry stack keeps the boat from sitting in the water all the time and rusting or suffering other damages because of the way the water hits the boat. This is especially true if your boat is in a salt water area. The constant barrage of salt water in your motor and along the sides of your boat will cause problems in the long term if you do not take good care of it. Certainly, boats are made to live in the water. However, most recreational boats, such as those found at a marina, are for fun rather than serving a utilitarian purpose. They are not made to simply sit in salt water, day after day. You need to install a dry stack in order to protect your customers’s boats and make sure that you offer all of the services of a marina.
