Re: Winter Storage Recommendations?

The hard parts of your Tartain are not going to care they are outside, other than wanting a good cover to keep the decks clear of freezing water/snow. However, plenty of other things are. At temps that low, be sure to use -100f antifreeze. If the standard -50f antifreeze is diluted in the process of flushing out your systems, its antifreeze capacity becomes severely reduced. Those are burst ratings, not freeze ratings, btw. Each of these products actually freeze at much warmer temps. The -50 freezes at a temp well above zero. The question of when your hoses will burst, due the freeze expansion, is more than I'm willing to test. I understand the burst rating is based on metal.

Re: Winter Storage Recommendations?

Sorry this is a little off topic...

I am looking at storing my Tartan outside in MN. I have not purchased yet and am considering a >20 y/o boat versus a 8 y/o epoxy hull boat. I am wondering if the -20 F temps we have here is going to cause any more trouble than the >15F temps I grew up with...In particular there are Marelon thru hulls and CF mast etc...any issues with the deep freeze?

Thanks
DD

Haley,
I though you were in the World's Fair marina, near LaGuardia?
Now you are down in Brooklyn?

3 - 4 hours to Manhassett Bay depending on where you are in Brooklyn.

I'd recommend weeks yacht yard in Patchogue as an excellent family yard but probably way too far for you.

Awesome. Thanks guys. I'm going to hit them up for a quote. Also need to figure out how long it would take to get up there from Brooklyn I have a couple weekends of work to do for next season.

The cost for wintering a 25' sailboat is going to be in the $1000 range pretty much everywhere... unless you belong to a club (like Hempstead Harbor Club).

Over winter in water storage may be cheaper at some places.
I've been here the last two winters and will be back for a third. Cheaper than Brewers (don't have to subsidize a pool, etc.). They were good enough to haul me just before Sandy hit (a week ahead of my scheduled haul date) and we came through just fine. That certainly buys some loyalty.

Re: Winter Storage Recommendations?

I'm not sure if it's a faux pas to bump such an old thread, but it's relevant.

I'm looking for Winter storage and hit up a couple places on City Island (. The quotes are all around $1300. Does that seem like a decent price (edit - all places that will allow me to do yard work)? I just don't want to get massively ripped off

Does everyone do shrink wrap for the Winter?

HUGOSALT Brett, Gulfway in Port Wash. reasonable and if you are working on the boat, very short walk to west marine and hardware store...and close to food. Hugo
