Why should I consider renting ?
There are a number of factors effecting recreational boating that contribute to the need of renting boat storage. Primarily, this is the case of supply and demand. Boating has soared in popularity, and larger more costly vessels are being constructed to supply the worldwide demand. This is placing pressure on the oversubscribed and limited rental market. Waterfront property is a high-demand, limited commodity. Small, formerly independent marinas have been purchased by large development companies and turned into residential condominiums. In addition, hazardous weather has destroyed hundreds of slips and environmental and regulatory land use restrictions have further reduced the available supply.
