There is a fairly high initial expense in the jack-stands and at 125 dollars each i was Not going to fool around threading shaft and adjustment handles











How you cover the boat is a BIG deal for two reasons as around here this is legally a membrane structure and is NOT LEGAL so we played tag taking it up and down as needed

The other BIG ISSUE is Not turning your yard into a superfund sight as there is a lot of freaking dust involved and as i am on concrete it was easy to keep things form soaking into the soil

Seafever is pretty easy to move and as far as cost we have a deal with the truck guy BUT is 400 dollars TWO times a year PLUS the boat yard cost





Zzzoom is a bit more of a PITA to move due to the 7' draft

I would call it a convenience more than a money saver as i still spend about 2K per year moving it with the yard costs BUT its great to have all my tools 5' away in a secure place

The biggest possible issue is local zoning laws as in Seafevers neighborhood its legal in the driveway and down the road 7 miles away Zzzoom has to be behind the home

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
