If it was sitting idle in the garage, there are chances of many things going wrong for the boat. Especially i the garage is not properly insulated or ventilated the climate and humidity may ruin the wooden structure of the boat. And it is exactly due to these reasons that I have stored mine at Migson Public Storage as they also offer boat storage service. My boat stays with them during the long winters at Brampton. They will ensure that the boat is not affected by the extreme climate variations, temperatures or humidity.
