Rick - I only wish. We kept our 23' boat in indoor storage before we sold it. I don't know of any indoor storage facility on Lake Champlain that could take a boat of our size. There is one on the Hudson that we considered bringing Pelican to but they didn't heat the storage facility and it was only open M-F 9:30am-4pm. From what I understand, it gets in the 40's in there, so most of the work that we'd want to do couldn't be done anyway. Also, there would be close to a $500 difference to store my boat inside vs. your boat. Add to that a several hundred dollar difference to unstep/step the mast, etc., and I just can't justify the price.
By the way - we will be shrinkwrapping the boat, and we'll be doing it ourselves. I'm going to buy 6 or 7 of those solar vents to put on the shrinkwrap to keep the air moving around on the inside. I was considering leaving an opening on the bow and perhaps the stern, but they are predicting a nasty winter and I don't want snow building up on our teak decks through an opening.
