Dry Storage Question...
Its not a bad way to go especially if you can tow your boat home and store her in your yard. I am finding so much easier working on my boat since she is at my house, (even though I am still remodeling the house and don''t live there yet) because I can set up my work in the shed and not have to get things out and put them away each time as you do in a boat yard.
In some ways storing a boat on a trailer is a little harder on a boat than storing a boat in the water where it is fully supported. If you do decide to store on a trailer I would go through the trouble of constructing ''profiled bunks'' that support the weight of the boat with stiff sections that follow the curves of the hull.
The only other thing is that in many areas dry storage is more expensive than a slip.
