For the cost of a $20 tarp!

Recommended Posts

I see this all summer and winter. Nice sleds sitting in yards during the summer uncovered and boats sitting uncovered in the winter. I just don't get why people wouldn't try and protect their $1,000's of dollar investment with at least a cheap $20 dollar tarp?  🤔

One guy told me that now a days his boat is made with all weather proof materials.  Well over time floors still rot and seam threads decay, seat foam holds water and molds and metal parts rust.  The sun rays are just as bad as water damage over time.  For $20 bucks all my toys are covered when stored outside.  👍

yeah it drive me nuts as well.  Had an old neighbor that let his nice boat sit out year round with no protection.  He was older and stopped using the boat but never bother covering it and he refused to sell it.  Many of the neighbors offered to buy it but he'd get really snarky and rude with his refusal.  I guess he got enjoyment out of seeing the boat decay over the years.  I'm sure the boat is pretty much worthless at this point, before I moved you could see that one of the seats had finally fallen over, I can only assume the floor rotted out couldn't hold the seat base any more.  

 

He had a nice little drop down fish house as well that he just let sit and rot.  Could have been a really nice light weight set up for putting out on a local lake but apparently he used it to hang up his furs when he was trapping and then never bothered to clean it out.  Not sure you could pay me to go in there now.

Very well agreed! Protect those investments! All my things are stored inside but they still get covered! Atvs, sleds, boat. 

This and I still have to put out poison in the garage!

I had a neighbor who was mulching up fall leaves with the riding mower and must have ran out of gas.  Then he went in for beer.

 

In January there was a hump of snow in the middle of his backyard where the mower sat.

 

I'm surprised it started in the spring, but it sure did.

My dad stores his boat outside but he has a custom made cover for his. I 've seen boats outside like the one in the picture and I feel this urge to rescue the boat

@leech~~ Confused?  I agree with protecting the gear.  The Opti comment was a bit of a joke due to their image:  Optibomb.

 

Shop for used boats for a year and you’ll see what I mean.
