Re: Winter storage on Great Lakes

Thanks all. If surveyor is correct, only area of above normal moisture readings ("relatively moist") is the rudder. But so far, no signs of delamination based on testing with percussion hammer. I'll get more info/cost on 1. outdoor (buy or rent stands and shrinkwrap or canvas cover), 2. indoor unheated, and 3. indoor heated. And I'll try to find cost of repairing what can happen if rudder starts delaminating.

I'm hoping to find that indoor storage might not be that much more expensive considering me doing my own maintenance/repair during winter. Or being able to get someone to work on it in winter when it's too cold for them to work on other boats.
