Covering Up Your Boat

~ Posted on Friday, October 5, 2012 at 3:59 PM ~

A few months ago, we went on a weekend holiday with our brother and sister in law and their family members. We stayed for a night at Avillion Resort Hotel Port Dickson and it was the first time my kids get to see so many boats at close-up range.

I remembered thinking to myself that all these boats were harbored at the jetty and most of them are not being used, heck, I think most likely these boats are being used only when the owners are available to take holidays or rest days to use them...

Now I don't think I'm qualified to advice much since I don't own a boat but I think if you are not using your boat, the owner or caretakers should at least cover up their boat right? In Malaysia, we get sunshine and rain all year long so I think the benefits of getting your boat covered up is to prevent mold and mildew which can be damaging to the boat's interior and decreasing the overall value of the boat as well. And also salt water is corrosive so long-term exposure to the boat can also result in serious damage to the boat's motor.

I was just browing around and came across the EmpireCovers website and noticed the many selections on EmpireCovers which one can look through before deciding to purchase a boat cover to protect their boat. I think this is a cool website as you can actually shop for the boat covers by the model, make, year and so on.

Do you have any tips to share on this topic?
